Battling the Hamster Wheel(TM): Strategies for Making High School Reform Work

About the eBook

Looking for effective strategies and best practices to break the cycle of ineffective school reform implementation?

Author Grace Sammon takes a sobering look at the state of high school reform and identifies the elements that keep us "running in place", rather than making progress on a road to success. Battling the Hamster Wheel™ offers research-based insights and strategies, stories from the field, and humor to help lead change agents and school leaders in a reform process to build the school communities they seek to create. It also provides the skills to establish and sustain the critical elements for schools′ success:

Demonstrating high expectations and a matching vision Building capacity to create a true climate for success Thinking small and dreaming big Engaging in legitimate community support Thriving with strong, sustained, and shared leadership Effectively aligning and managing resources Understanding the importance of time

This insightful resource includes a built-in book study and facilitator′s guide for school boards, administrators, teachers, consultants, and students of education, and for professional development events.
