  1. The Adaptive School: A Sourcebook for Developing Collaborative Groups

    The Adaptive School is about developing strong schools in which collaborative faculties are capable of meeting the certain challenges of today and the uncertain challenges of tomorrow. Some schools are flourishing. Others are making remarkable gains in improving student achievement, increasing attendance, attaining higher post-school accomplishments, and developing satisfying relationships with their communities. Some schools produce only fair results; others languish. We believe that all can be better. The Adaptive School is designed as a sourcebook to support you in developing and facilitating collaborative groups to improve student learning. You can use it as a basic text for yourself or as a reference book for diagnosis and problem solving.
