Abstract:

Guidelines for transforming and improving the nation's public schools are presented in this book, with a focus on the regional laboratory's program for educational change. The program is organized around "designing schools for enhanced learning" and is based on three principles--a focus on learning, a systemic approach to change, and building a sense of community. Four essential components of the process are examined: classroom practice; policies and structures; student support strategies; and family and community involvement. Five chapters describe each stage of school restructuring--getting started, exploring options, preparing for change, making change, and continuing to change. Each chapter focuses on key tasks and considerations, presents sidebars describing activities and giving program examples, and concludes with a relevant school vignette about a "Kindle the spark" participant. An essay on early childhood education concludes the book. Thirty-four figures are included. Appendices contain selected references, an annotated bibliography, and a list of resource organizations. (105 references) (lmi).
