All Students Learning: Making It Happen in Your School. By Request Series.
This booklet, part of a series on "hot topics" in education, advances the premises that student differences exist and that these differences can influence the way students learn. It is also assumed that there are measures schools and teachers can take that will improve the likelihood that students succeed in school. Among the issues that must be considered for implementation of a learning-for-all program are preparation, the school profile, goals, family involvement, outside support, school leadership, professional development, curriculum development, school climate, service coordination, and monitoring progress. Some guidelines are offered for instruction to maximize learning for all students with adaptations to ensure individual learning. Some pitfalls in implementing the learning-for-all mission are acknowledged, and descriptions are provided for eight school district programs in the northwestern United States, many of which are urban, that exemplify strong efforts to serve all students.
