Easy to use and understand, Teams in Educa-tion: Creating An Integrated Approach is a tool for education professionals who need or want to develop cross-functional or departmental teams in education. This new handbook was specifically designed to provide education professionals with a practical, pragmatic way to create and manage quality teams. Although there are many team handbooks available today, most are complex and difficult to follow for the average individual. In addition, these books are expensive and many schools or school districts cannot afford to purchase a copy for everyone. Unlike these existing handbooks, Teams in Education is clearly written in straightforward language that simply describes how to create and manage teams. The reader quickly understands the processes to follow to ensure total participation in team activities and is given the tools to measure and document team progress. As one education professional explained, the reader develops the expertise and understanding necessary to eliminate and manage conflict. This unique handbook also contains a simple process to encourage everyone to participate in the quality initiative. The 5+5 program outlined in this book is used to demonstrate to staff that no improvement is too small. This technique makes it easier for staff to show the added value of their quality activities to administrators and school board members. Special feature - this 5+5 program is the only program designed to collect the data education professionals need to show that they are making improvements in student and administrative outcomes.
