Breaking Ranks: A Field Guide for Leading Change
Presenting Breaking Ranks: A Field Guide for Leading Change
This “how to” book provides the missing steps in the process to bring about change in middle and high schools.
Based on the core areas of Breaking Ranks and Breaking Ranks in the Middle, this book gives school leadership teams tools to use and actions to take along with any school improvement plan that states and districts develop.
The book is organized around a process circle that asks school teams to gather data, explore possible solutions, assess readiness, create a plan, implement the plan, as well as monitor and adjust the plan. All while viewing the process through the lens of real school improvement plans with their successes and failures.
With the publication of this book, NASSP continues its highly successful Breaking Ranks series and promises additional pieces in the future. Learn more about this exciting new book, read the Executive Summary.
Listen to NASSP director of program services John Nori talk about the book and the process that moves schools beyond structural change to deeper, sustained improvements.
