Teaching quality is one of the most intensely discussed and debated themes in education reform today. This guide, prepared by AISR with support from the Schott Foundation for Public Education and the Ford Foundation, offers six game-changing strategies that both our own experience and our survey of the field have shown to be powerful supports for the quality of instruction. For each strategy, we outline the problem; what needs to happen; an example of best practice; what readers can ask about and advocate for in their own communities; and further resources.
