Editorial Reviews

Review

The information presented here will give you an opportunity to read, reflect, and hopefully apply these principles to achieve success with all students. Our students took the state test after less than a year of working with Donyall and achieved a total of 48% growth in reading and math 24% in each area. We have much work to still do but will rely on the adoption of the Integrated Approach to continue our journey. --Jacqueline S. Conarton, Ph.D.Principal Goldfarb Elementary School Las Vegas, Nevada

About the Author

A former elementary teacher and high school teacher of English literature, Donyall D. Dickey is currently a Howard County, Maryland, middle school principal; a Johns Hopkins University graduate school instructor; an author; and sought-after educational consultant. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Loyola University where he earned a Master of Education in Administration & Supervision and is currently a doctoral candidate at George Washington University in Educational Leadership & Policy studies, researching student achievement and standards based assessments. Dickey s career is characterized by promoting unparalleled student achievement and school improvement. Each of the three schools where he has served as a school administrator has demonstrated record gains on state assessments. Most recently, he has led a previously underperforming middle school to unmatched gains on state and local assessments, transforming it into a model for instructional leadership for the region and the nation. Student groups regardless of race/ethnicity, special needs, socioeconomic status, or English proficiency demonstrated double-digit gains in just one year using this model. Other schools implementing his coaching method have consistently demonstrated similar gains. Dickey is recognized as an authority on curriculum and instruction, as well as the administration of schools. His ideas for closing the achievement gap are used in schools across the nation, making the goal of adequate yearly progress possible for thousands of children who experience his methods.

I had the pleasure to meet the author of this book. He has amazing insight into improving teachers so student achievement can improve. He also has other products that are amazing for understanding the CCSS and helping teachers with lesson plans and various texts related to each standard.

Some of the ideas in this book do represent good teaching practices such as good lesson plans, individualized attention and assessing what needs to be taught. But you don't need a book to tell you that.

Dr. Conarton's results were indeed impressive in the 2007-2008 school year, but in the 3 years since,they have not been stunning. Mr. Dickey picks and chooses which data he presents to make his data appear better than it is. When analyzed carefully, it is difficult to tell whether the integrated approach improves students scores.

Read this book with skepticism. It is not the miracle fix-all that it claims to be.

The Integrated Approach to Student Achievement was an excellent read. Mr. Donyall Dickey delivered a realistic approach that most educators can understand and incorporate into their pedagogy. Moreover, Donyall is practical and provides frameworks to differentiate instruction and improve student results. Also, Mr. Dickey's research demonstrates that one year of ineffective teaching will set back a student two years. As a result, administrators and educators must improve to reduce the achievement gap. Moreover, Donyall's Intergrated Approach to Student Achievement strategies are of value for schools in transition to Charlotte Danielson's Framework for Teaching. Lastly, Mr. Dickey provides data in which high expectations, expert instruction and remediation of skills will increase student academic performance.

Format: Paperback
I have used the integrated approach in my classroom (and school-wide) since September 2009. As a result, I have witnessed low performing students vastly improve their skills in reading and math. The book stresses how effective instruction takes place when teachers prepare lessons that are "intentional." In fact, the author states that "teaching without out a lesson plan is malpractice." If you want to improve your craft, and the performance of your students, this book is a great place to start!
