Move beyond a "quick fix"

Blueprint for Action provides a framework for understanding the dynamics of organizational change in early care and education settings. This book helps administrators move beyond a “quick fix” notion of center improvement by serving as a guide for organizational analysis and action. It details a comprehensive method for assessing program strengths and areas in need of improvement. The heart of this approach is an individualized model of supervision and staff development. Woven throughout the text are numerous vignettes connecting the concepts to real-life situations experienced by early childhood administrators.

From the aspiring or new director to the most seasoned and experienced administrator, this book has something in it for everyone. It includes 26 assessment tools and 12 worksheets that directors can adapt for use in their own programs.

Use this book with the Blueprint for Action, Third Edition, CD-ROM. Each of the 26 assessment tools and 12 worksheets can be reproduced for professional development or assesment purposes at your program. Each assesment tool comes with background informatio on the development of the assessment, directions for administering and scoring the assessment, and suggestions on how to use the results.
