Excerpt

Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL), located in Aurora, Colorado, is a private, nonprofit organization founded in 1966. McREL's mission is to make a difference in the quality of education through applied research, product development, and service.

This publication was created based on work completed through McREL's contract with the U.S. Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences to serve as the regional educational laboratory for the states of Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. As a regional laboratory, McREL provides field-based research, technical assistance, professional development, evaluation and policy studies, and information services to state and local education agencies in these states.

For more than a decade, McREL has been at the forefront of research, practice, and evaluation related to standards-based education. McREL's national leadership area under the regional laboratory contract is standards-based classroom instruction. This publication, written for practitioners and policymakers, is based on McREL's 2002 research synthesis, Helping At-Risk Students Meet Standards: A Synthesis of Evidence-Based Classroom Practices. This publication represents part of McREL's continuing efforts to build on its expertise and research activities, turn reseach into practical guidance, and work with schools, districts, and states to improve their practices and capitalize on the great potential that standards-based education holds for students.

The authors wish to acknowledge the contributions of a number of individuals in the preparation of this publication. Appreciation is extended to external reviewers David Flowers, Marcia Bush Haskin, and Lin Kuzmich, and to McREL staff members Greg Cameron, Zoe Barley, Lou Cicchinelli, Kirsten Miller, Mya Martin-Glenn, Becky Van Buhler, Terry Young, and Robyn Alsop. A debt of gratitude is also owed to the authors of the research that supports this publication. Last but certainly not least, special . . .
