"Making Middle Grades Work": An Enhanced Design to Get All Students to Standards
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
The "Making Middle Grades Work" ("MMGW") school improvement design consists of a framework of Goals, Key Practices and Key Conditions for accelerating learning and setting higher standards. It recommends research-based practices for schools to improve academic and exploratory instruction and sustained student achievement. "MMGW" research has shown that sustained school improvement and student achievement occur when state, district, school and teacher leaders work together and take ownership by adopting the MMGW design for the specific needs of individual middle grades schools. The "MMGW" design is described in this document. (Contains 2 tables.) [SREB's school improvement initiatives are supported by state consortia, the U.S. Department of Education, the Mott Foundation and Middle Grades Consortium.]
