  2. The System and Powerful Learning

    This manual takes a wide-angle view of school improvement, investigating the strategic context for effective schools and systems. The Powerful Learning School Improvement Strategy is based on an inside-out approach to improvement that centres on the needs of students and teachers and focuses on the goal of developing and supporting the curious learner. Moving outward from the centre, the model then focuses on building powerful classroom practice, organisational capacity and systemic context. These elements interrelate, work together and inform an overall improvement strategy that introduces ten principles, or Theories for Action, that guide strategy, planning and practice. The authors draw lessons from the evidence about how to shape the context of improvement so that the greatest benefits are won for our students.
