Constructing School Success by Hugh Mehan

Book Description

How can we bolster the academic success of low achieving students and provide a more egalitarian classroom setting? This book describes the process of 'untracking', an educational reform effort that has prepared students from low income, linguistic, and ethnic minority backgrounds for college. Untracking offers all students the same academically-demanding curriculum while varying the amount of institutional support they receive. Helpful institutional 'scaffolds' teach the hidden curriculum of the school, allowing students to develop an academic identity and build bridges between high school and college. There have been many plans and attempts to reform schools, but few detailed investigations of such efforts. This book is a highly readable account of a successful school reform effort. It provides systematic research results concerning the educational and social consequences of untracking previously low achieving students.

Reform as Learning by Hugh Mehan Reform as Learning, Paperback (May 2006)

Drawing on ethnographic research collected over the San Diego reforms, this book identifies how teachers, principles, and other district educators were shaped by the large-scale reforms and the ways in which the reforms unfolded. It also shows how actors throughout a school system can change the views of leaders and impact the reform process.

Extending Educational Reform by Hugh Mehan Extending Educational Reform, Hardback (March 2002)
