Intentional Schools: Living in the Moment
Van Bockern, Steve
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v20 n1 p6-9 2011
Schools with good intentions are not the same as schools being intentional. Sometimes the best intentions--a result of valuing efficiency, standard procedure (tradition), obedience, or the latest educational fad--create unintended consequences that are not necessarily in the best interest of children. Intentional schools develop a culture of respect by focusing on meeting the needs of youth, even in small moments. This involves four powerful styles of "primal leadership," namely affiliative, coaching, democratic, and visionary. (Contains 1 table.)
