The Distinguished Visitor: Inspiration for Conversation and Change
Kalin-Miller, Maryanne
Schools: Studies in Education, v6 n1 p23-36 Spr 2009
This article encourages schools to invite an outside visitor who can provide a common experience for faculty, administration, students, and parents. Through objective observation, the visitor can provide thought-provoking and inspirational feedback on the life of the school. School visitors have affected my classroom life and the daily life of the Francis W. Parker School for decades. They have provided periods of enriched thinking, reevaluation, and thoughtful change.
