Meeting AYP in a High-Need School: A Formative Experiment
Fisher, Douglas; Frey, Nancy; Lapp, Diane
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v52 n5 p386-396 Feb 2009
This formative experiment was designed to ensure that a group of high school students developed their literacy habits. The intervention consisted of a schoolwide approach to literacy using four instructional routines: think-alouds, note-taking writing to learn, and dedicated reading time. As part of the formative experiment, we document the two-and-a-half-year process required for the school to implement the initiative as well as the outcomes of the effort.
