Adolescent Literacy, Field Tested
A Diploma That Matters: Schoolwide Efforts to Improve High School Teaching and Learning
This chapter focuses on schoolwide efforts to improve the achievement of adolescent learners. We start with efforts to build students' competencies and then turn our attention to teaching students with instructional routines and strategies that they can use across their school day and then in college. We conclude the chapter with a discussion of the need to create a college-going culture.
