Summary This unique book tells the story of a select group of schools and teachers who have managed to beat the odds in terms of improving elementary students' reading achievement. Originating with the CIERA School Change Project directed by Barbara M. Taylor and P. David Pearson, it was subsequently expanded to include the work of other research teams doing similar work. It combines large scale studies of effective schools and teachers (Part I) with case studies of individual schools and teachers who have successfully transformed research findings into situation-specific strategies appropriate to their schools and classrooms (Parts II and III). The book's distinct contribution is showing that no matter how consistent the research findings on effective school and classroom practice, groups of teachers must improvise their own situation-specific programs and practices. In short they must be able to create variations on a common theme.
