Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lynn Winters's and Joan Herman's The Turnaround Toolkit is written for school leaders who are focused on transforming instruction, and who may be working under significant time constraints to reverse declining student achievement or public perceptions of school failure. Based on the evidence that simply implementing continuous improvement is not enough to close the achievement gap, The Turnaround Toolkit provides a nine-step formative evaluation program designed to achieve an immediate and consistent focus on improving instruction in order to bolster student achievement. In a straightforward and accessible fashion, Herman and Winters explain three overarching Turnaround Tasks that frame these steps and the necessary-and sometimes drastic-actions that must be taken by school leaders as they use data to strategically choose, implement, monitor, and revise school interventions. A dedicated, online toolkit offers numerous worksheets and templates that support each stage of the process and help school leaders scaffold the work of educators to put an aggressive turnaround plan into action while a leadership guide at the end of the book provides guidance to turnaround teams and facilitators.

Book News Annotation:

In this guide to turning around struggling schools and districts, Herman (National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, & Student Testing, UCLA) and Winters, a former assistant superintendent and current consultant who trains urban data teams and evaluates urban school leadership training, detail a method based on data-driven continuous improvement processes to rapidly improve school and student achievement, meet accountability targets, increase the school's competitive edge and reputation, and build a system for ongoing improvement. They explain how to realign structures, use accountability and assessment data to redesign programs, evaluate and revise the turnaround plan, and reflect on lessons learned.
