Reproducible visual masters and comments on each master are provided for seven areas which have been identified by research as characteristics of effective schools: (1) safe and orderly environment; (2) clear school mission; (3) instructional leadership; (4) high expectations; (5) opportunity to learn and student time-on-task; (6) frequent monitoring of student progress; and (7) home-school relations. A four-page brochure for schools which explains the program is included.
