Facilitating Student Achievement: Focusing on Promising and Exemplary Programs in Reading; Writing; Thinking; Partnerships; Technology.
Seligman, Claudia Dee; And Others
This document is a collection of reviews of promising and exemplary programs designed to improve student achievement. The programs reviewed represent the five areas that hold particular promise for strengthening students' academic performance: improved instructional strategies in reading, writing, and thinking; and the use of educational partnerships and technology to support and enhance instruction. The reviews focus on Theme E, a project designed to provide a select group of teacher educators and other staff development providers with research and practice-based information about instructional approaches that improve student achievement. The reviews of each of the 63 programs are organized into four sections: needs, description, implementation, and assessment. With the caveat that the lack of assessment information to evaluate the effectiveness of some programs requires additional information on these programs, the reviews aim to meet the need for more specific information on effective instructional programs and practices. One figure listing each program, its primary and secondary focus, and its page number is included. (RS)
