This book focuses on the process of educational change and leadership using the Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM) as a conceptual framework. The change process in schools is made complex by the wide range of educational innovations. These require effective leadership that recognizes the role people play. If the focus of change is solely on technology and if the personal side is not addressed, the result is resistance and implementation failure. This book addresses those concerns using the CBAM Model in a useful and immediately applicable format. Each chapter in the book is organized to move from concept to application covering: research, a clear description of the change concept, case studies, examples, discussion questions, and activities.Hall, Gene E. is the author of 'Implementing Change Patterns, Principles, and Potholes' with ISBN 9780205162222 and ISBN 0205162223.
