Schoolwide Transformation: Schools for Rigor

How Can My Whole School Implement Academic Teaming?

While educators may use The Power of Student Teams book and the resources on this website to launch their academic teaming journeys in their individual classrooms, there are a number of complexities with transforming a whole school to this new way of teaching and learning. Schools for Rigor is an initiative which includes schoolwide implementation of student-led academic teaming, professional development for school leaders and classroom staff to help them successfully make the shift to this new model of teaching and learning, intensive coaching for leaders and teachers, and supporting technology to measure progress.
