Despite growing evidence that all students will benefit from engaging and challenging instruction, many struggling students continue to experience a circumscribed curriculum that emphasises low-level skills. Featuring contributions from emerging and well-known researchers, this important volume is about the enactment of high-expectation curricula in everyday practice. Chapters document specific classroom strategies that make a difference in the learning of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and cultural and linguistic minority communities. While the book focuses on language and literacy instruction, key chapters on math and science also demonstrate high-expectation teaching across the curriculum.

Book Features: A broad framework for creating high-expectation curricula in underperforming K-12 schoolsClear illustrations of what alternative literacy practices look likePowerful examples of rich math and science instructionResearch-based strategies for second language learners, students with disabilities and struggling readersAn incisive critique of the ''deficit-driven'' curricula that dominates in underachieving schools and classrooms.
