Reading Notes on Making the Case for Consultee- Centered Consultation: A Novice Consultant’s perception of Culture and Relationships by Erica Sherry. In class text- book “Becoming a School Consultant: Lessons Learned”. Edited by Sylvia Rosenfield 2012 Advance Organizer Questions: 1. What are the essential concerns that this case presents to the novice consultant? 2. What skills will the consultant need to bring or develop to consult in this school culture? 3. What activities may need to precede consultation to help build awareness for the value of individual teacher consultation over group problem solving? 1. With the administrator 2. With the faculty? School Culture: (p. 99)  School culture is established by the principal and by the architecture of the school (or school layout).  Depending on the principal’s style of collaboration will impact the school’s style of collaboration  In Erica Sherry’s case, her principal preferred grade-level assistance teams that were mandatory for teachers to conduct.  Sherry witnessed that even though teachers believed these grade-level meetings were an integral part of student success, balkanization and contrived collegiality happened during these times.  Balkanization occurs when teachers and administration form cliques in schools for personal interest or for competition  Contrived collegiality happens when school staff are forced to meet, instead of given an opportunity to meet. Relationships: (p. 100)  Sherry realized early on in the consultation process the importance of distinguishing a personal relationship at work with a working relationship.  Sherry began using the words “we” and “us” during the collaboration in order to emphasize the working relationship between herself and the teacher she was working with.  It is important to use shared language in a collaboration in order to emphasize teamwork and unity. Communication Skills: (p. 101)  Paraphrasing helps with clarifying meaning and intent  Sherry ran into the problem where she was uncomfortable interrupting the teacher in order to clarify concerns.  She had to learn to make the collaboration more of a dialogue instead of a monologue  Perception checks is a communication technique described by Sherry acknowledges the consultee’s emotions without convey approval or disapproval. Problem Solving Stages: (p. 102)  Contracting o Introduction of self o Expectation of the collaboration process o Agree on meeting times and amount of meetings possibly needed  Problem Identification o By second meeting, work on identifying a problem that is observable and measureable o Teacher agreed to help student by doing an instructional assessment using the three- trial method to collect data  Intervention Design o Used “drill sandwich” to teach unknown words to student 3x a day o Used pocket cards to reinforce known words periodically throughout the day  Intervention Implementation and Evaluation o During the next few sessions fidelity to plan was monitored.  Closure o Collaboration reached an end due to end of year state-wide testing o Sherry did not want to force implementation if it was not going to be followed with integrity and fidelity. Lessons Learned: (p. 107)  There were still positive outcomes even if they had stopped intervention prematurely  Sherry was able to learn the importance of contracting and identifying the problems early in the intervention  Sherry also was able to develop a positive consultation relationship
