1 Starting Big or Starting Small: Theories for Creating Classroom Change Across the School System Suzanne Donovan, SERP Institute Mike Sorum, Fort Worth ISD Nancy Vye, University Washington

2 Gap between design and implementation Poor program conceptualization (Supovitz and Weinbaum, 2008) Unforeseen challenges brought by the local environment or individual actors (McLaughlin, 1987), Inconsistent implementation across sites (Berends, Bodilly, & Kirby, 2002), Changes in district and state context (Datnow, 2005) Adaptation to the design itself (McLaughlin, 1976; Datnow, Hubbard, & Mehan, 2002; Supovitz and Weinbaum, 2008).

3 Framing Questions At what point did you decide that you had something that you wanted to do at scale in a district? What is your implicit or explicit theory for achieving change throughout a district? What level did you start at and why? How did the level that you started at lead to different challenges in trying to achieve change throughout a district?
