Lessons from Leading Models
Quint, Janet
Educational Leadership, v65 n8 p64-68 May 2008
Quint reports on a synthesis evaluation of three widely used high school reform models--Talent Development, First Things First, and career academies. She highlights approaches within each model that helped high schools restructure themselves in ways that affected student outcomes, particularly for struggling 9th graders and students from low-income backgrounds. Quint focuses on five key areas in which these initiatives helped low-performing high schools: creating a sense of belonging, helping freshmen with weak academic skills, preparing students for postsecondary success, improving instruction, and stimulating lasting change. She details how each model implements such strategies as small learning communities and intensive remedial courses for 9th graders. (Contains 1 endnote.)
