Summary
Asking the RIGHT Questions describes the essential aspects of school change in simple, straight-forward language; provides a common starting ground for educators who have similar goals but different skills; and includes real-world examples along with an annotated bibliography for locating research-based references. [The book] helps you answer these questions: Where are we now? Where do we want to go? How will we get there? How will we know we are "getting there"? How can we sustain the focus and momentum we're building? Holcomb gives you group processes that really work and lists tips for facilitators and team leaders. A matrix helps you review available skills and determine what additional skills and training your team may need
