Presenting information from school projects, interviews, workshops, conference sessions, newsletters, conference review reports, and technological developments, this series of four project information updates reports on a variety of issues relating to student achievement. The first update reports some recent work in facilitating student achievement in reading, writing, thinking, using technology, and school, parent, student, and community partnerships. The second update describes six programs representing a sample of programs that have changed to improve student achievement in reading. The third update interviews five people regarding their experiences with issues surrounding technology in the schools. The fourth update (the last in the series) focuses on two staff development efforts designed to help teacher educators and staff developers use cutting-edge research and practice-based information about instructional approaches that improve student achievement. In addition, an inservice workshop on thinking skills, and four staff development workshops on classroom assessment are also discussed. (RS)
