Publisher Comments:

This book pulls together the common themes of the many attempts at educational reform in the United States. It looks particularly at today's North American high school, where reform seems less tenacious compared to elementary and middle schools.

Synopsis:

A credible plan for transforming secondary education by educators already involved in pioneering the change. Ron Brandt Writer and Consultant, Former Executive Editor, ASCD

Finally, a clear and practical approach for implementing genuine school improvement based on high standards. Marsh and Codding have gone beyond the rhetoric of many high school reform leaders and have addressed the needs of parents and practitioners alike. Their collection of essays represents a powerful and pragmatic blueprint for a new American high school. Bravo. Robert A. Mackin, Finalist, National Principal of the Year, NASSP, and Principal Souhegan High School Amherst, New Hampshire

This book begins by focusing on where American high schools are now - based on a picture of a real, high-performing school. Authors share their perspectives on how high schools are lagging in preparing students for life after school.

In subsequent chapters, Marsh, Codding, and Associates paint a powerful picture of what high schools could be like. They discuss examples of reform efforts that look at classrooms, students, and outcomes in new ways.

The authors offer these proposed changes to American high schools: Student performance assessments that capture conceptual understanding, problem solving, and communication Curriculum based on student outcomes, constructivist knowledge, and school-to-career applications Learning activities that challenge students to think, solve problems, and collaborate School cultures based on enhanced learning, meaningful staff-student interactions, and ongoing professional development

If you're interested in new directions for your high school - and you want to know howto get there you need to read this guide.

Synopsis:

If you re interested in new directions for your high school, you need to read this practical, real-world guide from two nationally recognized experts.
