Authors Bruce Joyce, James Wolf, and Emily Calhoun provide a research-based, practical guide for renewal that keeps one goal central: improving student learning. Through scenarios describing the actions of a district restructuring committee, the book shows how the "interlocking spheres of the organization" cooperate, with roles and functions blending in leadership teams and study groups, action research becomes the driving force in the evolution of such a self-renewing organization, and schools and districts choose reform initiatives with proven track records - and then support these efforts with carefully planned staff development. 82 pages
