School improvement begins with self-examination and honest dialogue about socialization, bias, discrimination, and cultural insensitivity. The authors acknowledge both the structural and sociological issues that contribute to low-performing schools and offer multiple tools and strategies to assess and improve classroom management, increase literacy, establish academic vocabulary, and contribute to a healthier school culture.


Reflect on current practices, and identify areas for improvement. Spot the factors that can be harmful to school cultures. Identify your school as high will/low skill, high skill/low will, low will/low skill, or high will/high skill. Develop a blueprint for achieving skilled pedagogy and successful school improvement. Gain practical classroom management strategies and activities.
