PUT STUDENT LEARNING FIRST
Since the publication of Driven by Data in 2010, educators from schools across the world have adopted the foundational practices of data-driven instruction to make dramatic gains in student achievement. They have done so by focusing on two simple but powerful questions:
- How do we know if our students are learning?
- And when they’re not, what do we do about it?
The results of this approach are clearly highlighted in the book via multiple success stories from schools who have overcome the most challenging obstacles. When properly leveraged, data-driven instruction increases academic proficiency and helps students succeed on the road to college.
Driven by Data 2.0 presents a proven framework that shows how to:
- Assess (set the roadmap for learning)
- Analyze (identify why students struggle)
- Act (teach more effectively what students need)
- Build the Culture (train and develop your staff so that data-driven instruction can thrive)
“This book superbly describes the change process that leaders can go through with their faculty in order to make data-driven instruction a reality in their schools. You’ll also find the rationale and all of the structures for data analysis, scripts of how to analyze student thinking and come up with appropriate re-teaching strategies for weak areas, and precise guidance on how to run effective data meetings. This is the whole package.”
—JON SAPHIER, founder and president, Research for Better Teaching, and chairman emeritus of Teachers 21
