Additional Book Details

High-achieving students and teachers—winning strategies from Title I schools!

What makes a Title I school high-achieving, and what can we all learn from that experience?  Professional learning and leadership that supports personalized instruction makes the difference, as captured in the ground-breaking research of authors Sonia Caus Gleason and Nancy Gerzon.

This illuminating book shows how four outstanding schools are making individualized learning a reality for every teacher and student. The common thread is the commitment to equity—every student achieving. Readers will find

Guidance on identifying obstacles to equity within your school
Background that builds a case for personalized learning
Four case studies that show the lived values, professional learning practices, leadership, and systems that have helped schools transform learning
How-to’s and templates for creating a team-based professional development program that expands individualized instruction in every classroom

Discover new approaches for individual, team, and whole school professional learning that support personalized learning, drawn from schools that are leaders in overcoming challenges and creating opportunities.

"Equity is not an afterthought to high achievement. Gleason and Gerzon′s new book on outstanding equity-driven practice in four very different schools shows that if you want to raise the bar you have to start by narrowing the gap."
