A comprehensive tool for meeting high expectations,
This review is from: From Standards to Success: A Guide for School Leaders (Paperback)
Education professor Mark O'Shea presents From Standards To Success: A Guide For School Leaders, a multi-layered guide to the author's Standards Achievement Planning Cycle (SAPC), which is a comprehensive tool for meeting high expectations. Walking the reader through a fictional school that prepares to install the SAPC, From Standards To Success reveals the value of each facet of implementation from the levels of superintendent and principal to teacher observation and student assessment. Spelling out strategies to help school leaders identify which standards are most important, select appropriate curriculum materials and resources, create a benchmark-testing program, and much more. Charts and bullet points help clarify potentially confusing procedures and recommendations, and checklists at the end of each chapter emphasize the best practices in this useful guide to making standards-based education a reality.
