How to Get Results !

  • Mar 21, 2010
The author wastes no time in articulating what must
be done to improve student performance. Essentially,
teachers must assess students and use the data to
refine classroom strategies. Instead of simply
hiring outside help and purchasing reference books,
teachers must focus on what students must know
to succeed. To find this out, teachers and school
administrators need to research top schools and
find out why they are doing so well.
The data is out there for the taking.

Internally, the teachers have all the data on student
performance or lack thereof. This data must be
analysed by the teachers themselves. Teachers must
consult each other to arrive at a uniform strategy
aimed at finding out what works and what doesn't.

Individual students must be challenged to learn
the technical/analytical subject matter utilizing
techniques that have a known rate of success in
comparable learning institutions.

Motivation is another aspect of learning. Students
must be made to understand the relationship between
the technical subject matter taught in the schools
and the attendant benefits of life-long learning.
The inter-relationship between education and life
skills has a strong connection to virtually all
of the quality of life issues most students experience.

This volume will help teachers and administrators
articulate the learning objectives and instructional
methodologies that can move a school dramatically
