Ensure Conversations About Collaboration Get Results.
This book lays out the theory and practice of Collaborative Professionalism. Through five international case studies, the authors distinguish Collaborative Professionalism from professional collaboration by highlighting intentional collaborative designs and providing concrete examples for how to be more purposeful with collaboration.
Additionally, the book makes Collaborative Professionalism accessible to all educators through clear take-aways including:
- Ten core tenets, including Collective Efficacy, Collaborative Inquiry, and Collaborating With Students.
- Graphics indicating how educators can move from mere professional collaboration to the deep and transformative work of Collaborative Professionalism.
- Analysis of which collaborative practices educators should start doing, keep doing, and stop doing
Collaboration can be one of your most powerful educational tools when used correctly, and turned into action. This book shows you how.
This wonderful book starts with the proposition that our central question is not whether educators can make a significant difference in the well-being and capabilities of the children we serve and the communities in which they live, but whether we are willing to do so. Our work as educators is urgent; every minute matters for our most school-dependent children. This book is a powerful reminder that getting better is something we do together.
