Closing the Achievement Gap May 9, 2007
This book is the next step in the process of closing the achievement gap. If your school is already engaged in grade level or department data focused meetings, this book will provide the structure for leaders to work with teachers to dig deep into the accountability dialogue. Perfect for elementary leaders, secondary leaders will find that that book provides a structure to work towards.
As a result of following the framework, leaders will be able to answer the following questions: 1) What are the expected levels of performance for all students at each grade level? 2) How is each grade level/department progressing towards the standards? 3) What is each teams/departments plan to support students in meeting or exceeding the standards?
The book provides explicit questions that leaders will find useful to dialogue with teachers to support student achievement.
