Sparking a Revolution in Teaching and Learning
Eaton, Carole
T.H.E. Journal, v33 n1 p20-24 Aug 2005
About two years ago, Ohio's school district, like many other districts nationwide, was beginning to feel the first effects of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Reading scores at many of Ohio's elementary schools were unacceptably low, and one school in particular--Fairmount Park Elementary School--had been labeled as "in need of improvement" by the Ohio Department of Education. The school administrators tackled the district's reading problems with a broad approach that included a new research-based curriculum, intensive staff development, aggressive pre-testing, and daily after-school intervention programs. In this article, the author describes how the administrators at Fairmount Park Elementary School implemented a technology solution that raised the school's third-grade reading test scores by a whopping 124 percent.
