What Works to Improve Student Achievement - This research summary presents the basis for empirically documented classroom practices such as clear academic focus, certain teaching strategies and specific supports for teaching and learning, as well as the research underpinnings of schoolwide approaches linked to achievement, including the holistic approach to school reform, a school’s capacity for change and a focus on learning. The author notes that other factors, notably community support, parental involvement and school leadership, have likewise been found in research to foster student achievement.
