“The perennial question of school and system improvement is how do we do this work? We're convinced of the why--yes, we want to make a profound difference in the learning lives of young people--and we know the what--a knowledge-rich curriculum that attends to the needs of diverse learners--but please explain how to do this work well. This is a page turner for leaders and teachers, laying out with clarity and precision how to create powerful learning environments for deeper learning.”
