Thorough and comprehensive, it offers essential information about how to:

Also included is a section called Ports of Call which provides sources of information to help you implement comprehensive school reform at your site.

From Michael Fullan's Foreword . . .

Chenoweth and Everhart take the big concepts of change and work them through operationally at the level of day-to-day practice. We learn how to form leadership teams, the importance of focusing on capacity-building and reculturing, how to build commitment while dealing with dissatisfaction, problem-solving during implementation, how to keep going, and how to go beyond standardized testing in developing a range of alternative assessment strategies.
