Editorial Reviews

Nancy Frey
Breakthrough schools require breakthrough practices, and Breaking the Mold of School Instruction and Organization provides a guide for how to do just that. Leadership, English learners, building classroom communities all these topics and more are addressed. The stories of successes across town and across the world will resonate with every reader interested in school reform. And the good news is that the advice is not to simply work harder, but rather to work smarter.
Joyce L. Epstein
Breaking the Mold of School Instruction and Organization includes important ideas on teaching, leadership, and partnerships that will motivate students to learn and improve schools in wonderful ways. In chapter after chapter, the authors show that teachers and administrators have choices between the conventional vs. the creative, the isolated vs. the connected, and between old ways vs. new ways to organize schools, engage families and communities, and excite students about school and about learning. So many good ideas—tested and in practice—await others to see the point.
