Description

Joining the personal (inside) with the collegial and professional realms (outside) is essential if schools are going to truly become places of reflection and learning communities. In this new book the authors synthesize the work of the great thinkers in education, including Fullan, Palmer, Sergiovanni, Bolman & Deal, and Senge, to name a few. Starting with an overview of the conceptual model, the book shows how educators can implement these concepts into their personal and professional lives. The book also includes tools for reflection, exploration, and action that has been thoroughly tested in their own work with teachers and school leaders.
