The Adaptive School: A Sourcebook for Developing Collaborative Groups
Robert J. Garmston finds that in adaptive schools, inquiry is placed at the center of change because it gives teachers the tools they need to bring about genuine school improvement through collaboration.
The Amazon summary for The Adaptive School: A Sourcebook for Developing Collaborative Groups says:
Placing inquiry at the center of effective change, The Adaptive School gives readers the tools they need to bring about genuine school improvement and to use and incorporate them into practice. The book also includes a CD-ROM with 150 facilitation strategies and a problem locater that helps define problems and identify strategies to deal with them.
