This book describes the critical features of school organization plans (e.g., professional roles, organization of time, curriculum, student assessment, professional development, parental involvement) that can support or impede developing more effective educational settings. A revised and updated discussion on reading includes the most current findings on exemplary elementary reading development and instruction and on the importance and nature of effective classroom teaching. Added highlights on using technology for both teacher and student development are included. Readable and practical while grounded in proven practices and current research. Includes information on where to obtain specific materials that will support changing schools for the better-even providing toll free telephone numbers. This book offers a clear view of how schools must change if they are to meet the increased demands of education for the 21st century. Drawing on their experience as teachers, administrators, researchers, reformers, evaluators, and school consultants, Allington and Cunningham examine the policies, practices, and organizational plans that enhance or impede learning both in the schools of today and in the schools of tomorrow. This book picks up where the coauthor's other book, Classrooms That Work: They Can All Read and Write leaves off, with a focus on how to craft school organization plans that foster expert classroom teaching.
