Meeting Wise

Kathryn Parker Boudett and Elizabeth A. City

Meeting Wise proposes a fundamental shift in how educators think about the meetings we attend. Written by two editors of Data Wise, the book argues that these gatherings are potentially the most important venue where adult and organizational learning can take place in schools. This simple, succinct, and practical book shows how meeting planning can become a key strategy in the service of school improvement.

“This concise volume offers an effective and efficient set of tools and routines that we have found highly useful in organzing our work. The agenda template, used in conjunction with Meeting Wise norms, roles, and activities, helps to keep everyone on track and create shared ownership of the meeting's success. Meeting Wise is an invaluable resource for making the best use of our limited time together..”
—Tony Bryk, president, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
