This publication synthesizes recent research about standards-based education. It is intended to inform efforts to improve low-performing schools and create or sustain standards- based, high-performing learning communities. The five chapters are: (1) "Literacy for All Children" (aspects of literacy, reading, writing, and exemplary literacy teachers and their schools); (2) "Mathematics Standards in Classroom Practice" (mathematics standards, the status of mathematics standards across the states, mathematics standards in classrooms, characteristics of an effective standards-based curriculum, characteristics of effective standards-based mathematics instruction, and diversity and standards-based classroom practices); (3) "Teacher Learning for Standards-Based Education" (teacher knowledge and beliefs for ambitious standards-based reform, teacher learning for effective-standards-based education, effective professional development for standards-based education, accountability in support of teacher learning, organizational supports for effective teacher learning, and teacher learning in high-performing, high-needs schools); (4) "Organizational Policies and Practices Supporting Ambitious Learning for All Students" (e.g., the system context, the importance of local organizational capacity, organizational vision, and leadership and distributed leadership); and (5) "Summary of the Status of Research" (effective standards-based classroom practices and professional development and organizational capacity). An annotated bibliography is included. (Chapters contain references.) (SM)
