Clear goals.
Teamwork.
Data.

Like the water cycle, school improvement passes through these elements repeatedly. Schmoker shows how to put it together and supplies ample evidence from school after school, that it works.

Teams set clear measurable learning improvement goals. They teach and assess the learning. They bring the assessment data to meetings regularly where they analyze it together. This informs them of needs for instructional adjustments and strategies to continue moving toward the goal.

Great book. Schmoker is one of my favorite educational writers and is on point with much of what he argues. Through the use of data, professional collaboration and common assessment Schmoker argues that real results in educational reform can be realized and he makes the point rather effectively. His only glaring weakness is the short shrift he gives behavioral concerns within this context. Overall a must read for anyone concerned with educational reform.

For my Master's class. A pretty good overview of simple ways to improve academic results at a school.
I like the way he pushes the concept that even a high achieving school should strive for continuous improvement.
