The August/September issue of Teacher explores the ways schools and teachers today are working to boost student achievement. From a language arts program that mixes poetry recitation with basketball, to a high-minority arts school that has implemented a college-prep curriculum for all students, to advice from peers and a former Teacher of the Year, the issue includes plenty of ideas on ways to improve student engagement and performance.
Now we'd like to hear from you. What strategies have worked for you in improving student achievement? What challenges do you face in the classroom? How can schools best help students reach their potential?
