The new features in this substantially updated revision include: a focus on the site-based professional developer's role as a champion for change in a student-centered learning community; a framework that guides professional developers through three stages of implementation; attention on assessing low-performing students' learning needs as the starting point for creating sustainable change that improves academic achievement schoolwide; emphasis on mediated learning experiences and skillful coaching for adult learners as they gather information and implement new approaches
