Building a professional culture in schools by Ann Lieberman( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second wave of reform involves a comprehensive view of restructuring schools. This means rebuilding relationships among all school community members, changing organizational arrangements, and rethinking the curriculum. Written by second wave educators committed to professionalizing teaching and building a more collaborative school culture, the book is divided into two major sections. Part I examines questions of policy, research, and practice, seeking to determine the necessary conditions to change school culture. A chapter by Kathleen Delvaney and Gary Sykes explores complexities involved in building a professional culture. Next, Milbrey W. McLaughlin and Sylvia M. Yee advocate reconceptualizing the teacher's career, analyzing data from an indepth California study. Myrna Cooper's chapter examines school culture as experienced by those who live it. Linda Darling-Hammond and Judith Warren Little's chapters deal with difficult issues involved with reforming and professionalizing teaching. Part ii examines the need for building collaboration among teachers and for expanding their leadership roles, and ways of pursuing these goals. Part iii includes several examples from research and practice in places experimenting with new structures, roles, and coalitions. This section also examines how various aspects of school culture are affected by interventions beginning at the state, district, or local level and describes new ways of organizing schools. Holly M. Houston begins by describing an attempt to restructure secondary schools, while Roland S. Barth visualizes new roles for a community of leaders. Ann Lieberman, Ellen R. Saxl, and Matthew B. Miles closely examine the work, skills, and organizational behavior of a group of teacher-leaders studied over several years. Next, Phillip C. Schlechty analyzes the cultural change process in a large urban school district. Harry Judge's "Afterword" offers a global perspective on building a professional culture in schools. Patricia Wasley closes with an annotated bibliography of 28 titles. A subject index is provided. (Mlh)

"In Teacher Leadership, Lieberman and Miller discuss current changes in the teacher's role, and make sense of the research on teacher leadership. They offer case studies of innovative programs - such as the National Writing Project - that provide teachers with opportunities to lead within a professional community. In addition, they tell stories of individual teachers - from Maine to California - who are able to lead in a variety of contexts." "Teacher Leadership offers a new standard of teaching and community that recognizes all teachers as leaders. It shows how to develop learning communities that include rather than exclude, create knowledge rather than merely apply it, and that offer challenge and support to both new and experienced teachers."--Jacket

Teachers in professional communities : improving teaching and learning( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on their research and many years of lived experience in schools, the authors have become convinced that teachers learn best within their own work communities. In this volume, they explore what research and practice have to tell us about how such communities grow and develop, and how to negotiate the inherent tension between improving competence and building community. Using five themes that emerged from their studies of practice - context, capacity, content, commitment, and challenge - the authors examine selected research studies, personal reflections, and five cases that were especially commissioned for this volume in order to uncover new insights and understandings. The text begins with essays on research and long-term development projects and concludes with vignettes that address the following questions: What is the context of your program? How does your program deal with facilitating both competence and the building of community? What are the challenges, and how has your program dealt with them?"--BOOK JACKET

Teacher education around the world : changing policies and practices by Linda Darling-Hammond( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teachers are the most important single element of the education system but what does it take to create high-quality teachers in today's world? Around the world, countries are struggling to understand how to change their schools to meet global demands. International comparisons have shown that schools in Finland lead the league tables, but why is this? What new policies and practices in teacher education have they developed? How do they support the changes? A number of European and Asian countries also top the list when it comes to providing high quality teacher education, but there is little information about what they do, how they are doing the work and how they have made changes. The leading international contributors to this book describe the systemic policies and practices of teacher education in eight high-achieving countries and how they are dealing with teacher quality, equity, and the changing global society. Among the countries that are doing well - Finland, Singapore, the Netherlands, the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Australia and the USA - there is an interesting diversity of policies and practices that support their changes in education, including: - emphasis on the preparation, induction, support and assessment of new teachers; - focus on teacher retention, teachers' professional knowledge and continuing professional development; - curriculum change and critical policies."--Behind cover page
