Description:

How It¿s Being Done offers much-needed help to educators, providing detailed accounts of the ways in which unexpected schools¿those with high-poverty and high-minority student populations¿have dramatically boosted student achievement and diminished (and often eliminated) achievement gaps. How It¿s Being Done builds on Karin Chenoweth¿s widely hailed earlier volume, ¿It¿s Being Done,¿ providing specific information about how such schools have exceeded expectations and met with unprecedented levels of success.
