Narrowing the Achievement Gap in Schools - Great Reads!

Address the Achievement Gap
at Your School

Take a look at the books by Jensen and Marazano.  They might make great book study groups:)

 A forthcoming new ASCD book Raising Black Students' Achievement through Culturally Responsive Teaching by Johnnie McKinley.

This new book, due out in early November, describes a whole-school plan for raising the achievement of black students. Drawing from her work with teachers and school leaders who have narrowed achievement gaps in their schools, Johnnie McKinley lays out the instructional, management, and assessment strategies that make you far more effective at educating these chronically underserved students. As McKinley takes you through the steps of creating a teacher team and instructional walkthroughs, she imparts essential principles of culturally responsive teaching.
