Teacher as Mediator of Reform: An Examination of Teacher Practice in 36 California Restructuring Schools

author: Brad Olsen, Lisa Kirtman
description: "Imagine taking a walk down the hallway of a school ambitiously engaged in some of the cutting-edge educational reforms presently popular. Even the incomplete, cursory observation of classroom activities afforded by quick peeks through open doorways would strike an observer with the obvious question: How can he same school-wide reform activities at the same school in the same grade under the same reform aegis manifest themselves so differently inside each classroom? We explore that question here."
