About

Mike Schmoker presents the brutal facts about the quality of instruction across the curriculum. He argues convincingly that if student achievement is to improve, especially in the higher-order proficiencies, instruction will necessarily have to change and improve simultaneously. He sets out a clear but simple agenda to achieve such a transformation in American schools. This book should be required reading for everyone in educational leadership and anyone concerned about the quality of teaching and learning. In Results Now, Mike Schmoker presents a provocative critique of “business as usual” in American education. His candid assessment of conventional practice and his persuasive arguments for specific reforms demand the consideration of all those interested in creating schools in which all students achieve at high levels.
