Overview

Teachers share one vital characteristic with students: they function best in settings that are organized enough to provide structure and focus, yet flexible enough to respect developmental and personality differences. In Leading Effective Meetings, Teams, and Work Groups in Districts and Schools, author and veteran educator Matthew Jennings provides everything you need to help the teachers in your school or district achieve their full potential:

An overview of the research on collaboration and what it means for educators
Step-by-step guidelines for designing and facilitating meetings
Strategies for avoiding and resolving conflicts among educators
Checklists, questionnaires, and rubrics for designing, implementing, and assessing work groups and teaching teams

Whether you're setting up a complex district-level task force or a simple school faculty meeting, this comprehensive guide will ensure that you do so as efficiently and effectively as possible. Packed with field-proven activities, worksheets, and metrics, it is an indispensable resource for all educational leaders.
