Michael Fullan’s Topic Videos: The Big Black Box

Take-a-Way:

  • After Sputnik there was a big change in US curriculum. However, it was discovered that the changes that were reported were not actually taking place in the classroom. In reality, there was a huge gap in what was supposed to be happening and what was actually happening behind the classroom door- the big black box of implementation.
  • Fullan referred to showing how to implement quality implementation on a large scale, but the specifics of what that “how” is or what it looks like were not discussed in the video.
The Implementation Dip

I’m not quite sure what this is supposed to be. Hopefully, it will be addressed in future videos.
