Oh! One more thing. I went back to read your article on why the WoRM fails, and it's excellent. You're right on with all of those points. And I raise the question about what we leave the next CE director for the same reasons you said that the #2 reason for failure was the current CE director moving on. Yes. Yes. BUT...a new CE director is more likely to be bought into the model IF he or she weren't handed a nebulous program. The more we have in writing, the better, I think. The more strategic documents we create (things like student lists, volunteer lists, teaching team lists, clear lesson plans, charts of our tasks month-by-month), the more likely we are to leave the program in good hands when we step out. Part of implementing the program well is knowing that you're going to be replaced eventually...and caring enough about the kids to do more than leave a bunch of room decorations and good ideas.
