In addition, you'll get:* Practical guidelines for re-designing classroom activity so that more students are highly engaged in schoolwork* Clear and compelling standards for assessing student workYou'll also make clear connections between what students are doing and what they are expected to produce as you gain insight into the roles of teachers, principals, and superintendents--and, how they individually and collectively play a part in the WOW process.
