In today’s fast-paced educational environments, the one constant is change. Technology, new research, evolving stakeholder groups, stakeholder needs, and new cultures create opportunities for growth. Schools require adept leadership to make decisions to bring the plans for change into fruition.
You’re finalizing a presentation to introduce your action research idea to the group of teachers and outlining strategies to inspire buy-in and promote professional change.

Develop an original response to these questions:
In the context of theory and best practice, consider reasons for creating a community of collaborative inquiry. What are two reasons and strategies you would employ to create a community of collaborative inquiry? How would you propose these to the teacher group?
How would you communicate the value action research would bring to solving the problem and creating positive change in student performance?
