About the eBook

Create a schoolwide foundation to ensure academic success for ALL students

This useful guide supports the needs of culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse learners and demonstrates how a shared vision can increase student engagement and ensure that not-so-common learners benefit from academic rigor.

Taking a system-wide approach, the authors offer educators a model arranged in six distinct yet complementary pathways to improve programs, policies, and practices for diverse learners. This innovative framework includes:

  • Mapping and aligning an integrated curriculum—making the mainstream curricula accessible for all learners
  • Collaborative planning and assessment—pooling intelligence so the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
  • Teaching students explicit learning strategies—empowering students by increasing student-led learning
  • Promoting disciplinary literacy—providing all students with access to pertinent academic language learning

Featuring helpful tables that outline key concepts and real-life vignettes from schools that have successfully applied the principles, this book unlocks success for all students. 

"Dove, Honigsfeld, and Cohan recognize the urgent need for practices to change on a schoolwide basis so that diverse learners can be positioned to succeed with the Common Core. This book outlines inclusive practices so that all students are included in these important conversations."
—Diane Staehr Fenner, President

"In Beyond Core Expectations, the authors present a coherent framework for schoolwide instructional inclusiveness. This book is an essential guide for educators with a vision for true college and career readiness for ALL students, driven by sound curriculum, instruction and assessment practices."
