Overview

Successful school improvement requires both will and skill-the belief that all children can learn and perform academically and the ability to use responsive instruction that engages and reaches all students. Developing will and skill is the practical key to increased student achievement, particularly for students who struggle and are underserved.

Anthony Muhammad and Sharroky Hollie present four broad steps to developing a staff's will: (1) aligning philosophy, (2) managing frustration, (3) creating a culture of collaboration, and (4) institutionalizing a healthy culture. They then define and develop the components of a responsive pedagogy focusing on four areas of instruction: (1) classroom management, (2) academic vocabulary, (3) academic literacy, and (4) learning environment.

This book provides:

Reflection questions for examining current practices and identifying areas for improvement

Analysis of the factors that contribute to healthy and toxic school cultures and staff frustration

A three-step process for developing and implementing responsive pedagogy

Many practical strategies and activities for use in the classroom
