Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 31, 2015 1:42 PM

As we work on school improvement, we must look at the skills that lay the foundation for learning and academic achievement.  For too many of our poverty students, school becomes the place where these skills must be taught, nurtured and reinforced.  This must be a school wide, intentional effort.  Every adult in the building must be committed to developing these  skills in our children.  We must backwards design these skills into our curriculum before high school, looking at how these skills can be embedded into the school routine.
