`Readers will find in Hank Rubin's work both a useful theoretical framework and very practical advice for creating and sustaining collaboratives that foster improved student learning. This book provides insights for anyone engaged in collaborative efforts to improve student achievement-whether you are working at the school, local community, state, or national level' - Judy Wurtzel, Executive Director, Learning First Alliance Washington, D.C
Collaborative Leadership is a book for teachers, educational leaders, staff members, university professors, and students preparing for any of these positions. It is a simple book intended to help leaders lead, teachers teach, and intellectuals think more effectively with and about collaboration. Author Hank Rubin explores what it takes to form and focus the collaborative relationships necessary to accomplish important public missions, particularly education.
Essentially this book has two parts. Chapter 1-4 looks at the context, the reasons and complexities of collaboration from a number of perspectives, and pose a variety of arguments for doing collaboration. Chapters 5-9 attempt to respond to this argument with explorations of how to do collaboration. Collaborative Leadership is geared toward the familiar workaday world of people in the big and small systems that touch the lives of children from schools, to districts, to families.
