Teaming: Creating Small Communities of Learners in the Middle Grades


by Gretchen Guiton, Jeannie Oakes, Jennifer Gong, Karen Hunter Quartz, Martin Lipton & Julie Balisok 1995

In this chapter, we explore how the recommendations of Turning Points diverge from conventional school practices, norms, and politics. Then, we examine the initial reform efforts of twelve schools in four States. Like other authors in this volume, we are researchers and practitioners involved with school reform. However, unlike these authors who are themselves engaged in making reform happen, we have come to know these schools through their participation in a five-year study we are conducting as part of the MGSSPI.
