Case that separates description from reflection, and stays close to the data. How, if at all, does

this case resonate with your own attempt to support adult development in your school? For

your own personal case, think back to a time when you were working to support another

person’s development or someone was working to support yours.  What are one or two of

the key features of that experience that still feel unresolved for you?
