Generations at School : Building an Age-Friendly Learning Community Paperback
Edited by Suzette Lovely, Austin G. Buffum
Suzette Lovely and Austin G. Buffum explore ways to create and sustain a productive and synergetic environment in schools.
By examining the generational underpinnings that bind colleagues together or set them apart, their text offers a variety of approaches to establish collaborative team structures, build capacity and bring out the best in people.
The goal is to find common ground and cultivate cross-age learning communities that are improvement-driven. As educational leaders become cognizant of the work orientation, team assimilation, and supervisory style that motivates each generation, they can promote collective responsibility in a more sensitive, relaxed climate.
By appreciating the uniqueness of each staff member and creating conditions that support learning, these high quality leaders and their school districts serve as magnets for excellence.
