Module 1 - People

How can I customize to my needs and resources?

The steps in this module will help you to use Social Network Analysis to learn about the key people and relationships that can support implementation of the WSCC model. You may be wondering how you can do this work on top of all your other responsibilities. This module was designed so that you can choose the range and intensity of the activities that you want to complete.

Compare each option to understand the time, resources, and knowledge or expertise your school or district needs to implement each option and to select the option that is best suited to your needs and capacity.
