Teaching What Matters Most: Standards and Strategies for Raising Student Achievement
Teaching What Matters Most: Standards and Strategies for Raising Student Achievement

by Harvey Silver, Richard Strong, and Matthew Perini

Crafting a set of standards that is at once manageable, attainable, and good for all students has been elusive. Based on 10 years of research and work in more than 300 schools, the authors offer four standards to help all students meet the various standards dictated by states, regions, and districts:

• Rigor: helping students make sense of challenging texts and ideas

• Thought: helping students become adept users of powerful learning disciplines

• Diversity: helping students understand themselves and others

• Authenticity: helping students apply what they learn to the real world

In this book, the authors go beyond simply showing what each standard looks like in various school settings. They provide research-based teaching strategies that can help all students meet each standard along with assessment practices that allow schools and teachers to respond thoughtfully to the diversity of students’ needs.
