On Common Ground - 05 edition

On Common Ground (ISBN10: 1932127429; ISBN13: 9781932127423)
ISBN13: 978-1932127423
ISBN10: 1932127429

Summary: On Common Ground provides a valuable tool for educators who are doing the hard work of improving their schools. This resource offers teachers and administrators a coherent conceptual framework and specific, practical strategies for moving forward with their improvement efforts.

Any listing of North America's leading authorities on school improvement would include the authors in this book. These authors agree on many of the best strategies for raising studen
t achievement and support the premise that students would be better served if educators:
  • Embrace learning rather than teaching as their school's mission
  • Work collaboratively to help all students learn
  • Use formative assessments and a focus on results to foster continuous improvement
  • Assume individual responsibility to take steps to create such schools
  • Although they stand on this common ground, clear differences emerge regarding their perspectives on the most effective strategy for making professional learning communities the norm in North America. The differences, however, focus on the means rather than the end. These educational leaders have found common ground in expressing their belief in both the desirability and the power of professional learning communities.
On Common Ground brings the ideas and recommendations of these educational leaders into one resource for educators working to help their students achieve at ever-higher levels. Each chapter contributes to a sound conceptual framework and specific, practical strategies for developing professional learning communities.
