Abstract:

Contents: Introduction and overview -- A focus on learning and related outcomes: where to we want to end up? -- The learning and knowledge dimension -- The motivational dimension -- The organizational dimension -- A gap-analysis problem solving approach -- Taking social, cultural, and contextual processes into account.; Summary: Rueda identifies three primary reasons for the stubborn failure of most school reform efforts: 1) a fragmentation of approaches, 2) a misalignment of approaches and goals, and 3) a failure to match solutions to problems. This book provides an overview of each of these three dimensions, and discusses ways that they can affect performance. It then discusses a problem-solving framework that helps pinpoint where gaps exist in school efforts to improve performance, and then targets development of solutions and successful outcome loops that are customized to the specific areas that are problematic. --from publisher description
