Week 7 Discussion 1 – Douglass Street Case Study-Summer Work
After completing this week’s Readings and Resources, review the Douglass Street Case Study.
You find that by the end of the summer, the Good-to- Great Council had accomplished only about 20% of the interim assessment material Principal Brown needed to launch the data-driven instructional plan for the following year. Principal Brown immediately changed her plans for her own focus over the summer and devoted time to revising and completing the half-made assessment left from the council’s work.
- What do you think of the decision Principal Brown is making?
- If you appoint a committee to do a job, how will you follow up to be sure the job is completed?
- What might be some ramifications when you assign work to a committee and then you decide to take up the work that the committee left?
- What would you have done in this case?
Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
