This comprehensive multimedia kit offers staff developers everything they need to lead a highly effective and engaging book study seminar to advance professional development for school administrators. Participants will be lead through a detailed review and discussion of the third edition of 50 Ways to Close the Achievement Gap, which presents researched-based strategies for developing high-performing schools that offer equal educational opportunities for all learners.

A flexible curriculum guides facilitators through the process of exploring key themes of the book, helping participants understand the basis for many of the improvement strategies and what they need to do to implement these strategies in their schools. The seminar is designed to give participants a deep understanding of the following six critical school improvement standards:

  • Teach a well-crafted, focused, valid, and clear curriculum
  • Provide assessments with the curriculum
  • Align program and instructional resources with the curriculum
  • Use a mastery learning approach and effective teaching strategies
  • Establish curriculum expectations, monitoring, and accountability systems
  • Institute effective district and school planning, staff development, and resource allocation to create a quality learning environment

In addition to one copy of the book 50 Ways to Close the Achievement Gap: A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development, 3rd ed., this multimedia package includes

  • A 191-minute, content-rich DVD, with an easy stop-and-search navigation menu, and featuring expert interviews with the authors, school leaders, and administrators who have applied the strategies in their schools
  • A step-by-step facilitator's guide connecting the book to the DVD and providing chapter summaries, discussion questions, application activities, and handouts
  • A companion CD-ROM supplying PowerPoint slides and a digital copy of the entire facilitator’s guide

An ideal professional development resource to use with large or small groups, this multimedia kit makes it easy to lead successful professional development seminars on the critical issue of closing the achievement gap in our nation's schools.
