Strategies for using reflective writing to promote professional development : a guide for using "School leadership reflections on practice by California's instructional leaders" by Stanley A Schainker( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six strategies for using reflective narratives to promote the professional development of school leaders are briefly described in this paper, which is designed to accompany "School Leadership: Reflections on Practice by California's Instructional Leaders." Narratives are characterized by subjective perceptions that are shaped by personal value systems, serving as a catalyst for individual growth. The six strategies include: (1) the reflective writing strategy, an analysis of personal accounts of leadership incidents; (2) the information gap strategy, an analysis of unaddressed questions; (3) the mental set strategy, an examination of personal belief/value systems; (4) the Columbo strategy, which involves the use of inferential reasoning; (5) the "If This Were to Happen to Me" strategy, an application of generic problems to individual situations; and (6) the "What If" speculation strategy, which entails planning for realistic interventions.

Restructuring State Education Agencies Learning from State Leaders. SERVE Report by Linda J Nelson( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Findings of a study that describes restructuring efforts undertaken by state education agencies (SEAs) are presented in this paper. Data were collected through telephone interviews with SEA officials in 24 states that were actively engaged in restructuring and analysis of SEA documents. Factors that contributed to restructuring included the place of SEA restructuring on the national educational reform agenda, state financial cutbacks, and state involvement in key national school-reform projects. Obstacles to SEA restructuring included "turf" conflicts, entrenched organizational cultures, time constraints, and organized opposition. The respondents offered advice about what their colleagues might expect if they embark upon a major agency reorganization. They mentioned the central role of top leadership in initiating and sustaining restructuring, the importance of communication at all levels, recognition of the business community as a friend, the establishment of ground rules for transition planning teams, and investment in staff development. Respondents raised other issues, such as accountability, the boundaries of local initiatives, the desire for early results, and appropriate staffing of the SEA. Appendices contain a list of participating states, a profile of the state sample, and interview protocols. (LMI)

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides the Career Ladder Committee of Peoria Unified School District, Peoria, Arizona with an evaluation of the school district's Career Ladder Compensation Plan (clcp). The Far West Laboratory for Educational Research and Development, in February, 1989, was contracted to assess the impact of the clcp on teacher work and school operations in the district. The study was to provide the Committee with information on the strengths and weaknesses of this alternative teacher compensation program for use in shaping further refinements of the plan, now in its fourth year of implementation. The first section of this evaluation report provides information on the background of the plan and reasons for establishing it. Section 2 presents an overview of the plan and includes descriptions of the organization and functions of the plan, career ladder budget allocations, and a profile of career ladder teachers. In Section 3, findings are presented on the effects of the career ladder on teachers, school organization, and student achievement. An assessment is included of the components of the career ladder plan. The appendices include the survey questionnaires used in gathering data for this report, budget allocation charts, teacher profiles by grade and subject level, and the survey reponses from participants.
