effectively stating a problem
EFFECTIVELY STATING A PROBLEM
  • An essential skill for school leaders is the ability to assist the faculty in effectively stating a problem.
effectively stating a problem4
EFFECTIVELY STATING A PROBLEM
  • When a problem is effectively stated, a faculty can be greatly encouraged to resolve that issue or problem.
effectively stating a problem5
EFFECTIVELY STATING A PROBLEM
  • When a problem is effectively stated, creativity is encouraged, the issues are given full consideration, and alternative solutions are developed.
defining the problem
DEFINING THE PROBLEM
  • The greatest aid in defining a problem is isolating the real heart of the problem.
defining the problem7
DEFINING THE PROBLEM
  • There must be a separation of creative thinking from judgmental thinking.

DEFINING THE PROBLEM
  • It must be understood that the meeting is called not to settle the problem, but to get ideas on how to settle the problem.
stating the problem step 1
STATING THE PROBLEMStep 1
  • The process should begin with a problem question, not a solution question.
a solution question
A Solution Question
  • “How can we get teachers to accept team teaching?”
  • The solution has been given, “...get teachers to accept...”
a question statement
A Question Statement
  • “What instructional approach would be best to meet the needs of our students?”
  • Or, “What information would be helpful to teachers to make decisions about working cooperatively with each other?”
stating the problem
STATING THE PROBLEM

Review this statement…

  • “How do we get rid of our present instructional system and install a more efficient method?”
  • Is this a problem or solution statement?

A Solution Statement

Again, the solution is given.

  • A problem statement would be, “What are the characteristics of a teaching approach that we would like to have?”
best practice
BEST PRACTICE
  • The best practice suggests a separation of the solution from the problem; then the faculty can focus on understanding the details of the problem.

BEST PRACTICE
  • Once this occurs, appropriate solutions are likely to emerge.

STATING THE PROBLEM
  • There are no hard and fast rules for stating a problem. However, the art of group leadership is assisting the group to state questions in a problem, rather than a solution framework.
