Walking the Talk: Tools for Continuous Improvement in a Professional Development School
Ballock, Ellen
School-University Partnerships, v4 n1 p47-55 Spr 2010
In this article, I outline three structured protocols that professional development school steering committees and other collaborative groups could use to support an intentional reflective process aimed at growth and improvement. Using these protocols provides all participants with a voice in identifying current strengths and areas for growth, setting concrete goals, developing an action plan for meeting those goals, and monitoring progress toward goals. The purpose of these protocols is to support a group in moving from talking about improvement to taking action for change. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
