Schools Raise Achievement by Setting High Expectations for All Groups of Students
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
Schools are raising standards to improve academic and technical achievement and intellectual growth for all groups of students, particularly at-risk students. This newsletter contains tools and strategies that school leaders and teachers are using successfully to help students meet higher expectations. It organizes the techniques into five categories: (1) meeting the specific needs of all students; (2) building study skills; (3) creating intellectually demanding assignments; (4) improving reading skills; and (5) using differentiated instruction. [This newsletter of "best practices" in implementing the "High Schools That Work" ("HSTW"), "Making Middle Grades Work" ("MMGW") and "Technology Centers That Work" ("TCTW") school improvement models is based on presentations at the 23rd Annual "HSTW" Staff Development Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, in July 2009.]
