Elevating the Essentials to Radically Improve Student Learning
Mike Schmoker explains why and how to take a first-things-first approach to school improvement and focus laser-like on only three essentials: *Coherent curriculum (what we teach). *Sound lessons (how we teach). *Purposeful reading and writing (authentic literacy). In making his clear and compelling case, Schmoker delves deep into the significance of the three essentials so you get a complete understanding of what they mean to your daily practice. Applying these insights gained from his years of work with schools of all kinds, Schmoker lays out a complete plan for radically improving the way schools teach English, social studies, science and maths.
