The use of protocols has quickly spread from conferences and workshops to everyday school and university settings. Now in its third edition, this popular bestseller features substantial updates that take into account recent developments in the field of facilitative leadership. The authors have also added 11 totally new protocols, including the “Peer Review Protocol” and “Looking at Student Work with Equity in Mind.” This essential teaching and professional development tool includes:
- Step-by-step descriptions of how educators can use protocols to study together, work on problems of practice, teach well, and explore students’ work.
- Explanations of the particular purpose for each protocol, discussions of the value that educators have found in using them, and helpful tips for facilitators.
- A free supplement on the Teachers College Press website of “Abbreviated Protocols” that can be downloaded and customized to suit each facilitator’s needs.
