Reviews

"It is really important to me that I am kind of getting the full circle view of my classroom and seeing these are things that matter and these are things that could be better, and things that I can do to hopefully make things better by watching my class." -- Beth Sanders, Teacher "Seasoned author Jim Knight provides a masterful resource for teachers and other stakeholders to improve student achievement through a host of clearly defined instructional practices. The tools, resources, and examples he provides enable educators to easily implement his framework which comprise the key ingredients for effective instruction. Furthermore, his writing style makes it an engaging read." -- Kathy Glass, consultant and author of Curriculum Mapping: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Curriculum Year Overviews "Jim Knight has the capacity to be crystal clear at both the micro and the macro levels-a rare talent. High-Impact Instruction goes deep and it goes comprehensive. Planning, instruction, and community building become interwoven in a powerful manifesto for fundamental instructional and system change-a treasure trove of clear concepts, great ideas for action, and the tools to implement them." -- Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus "Jim Knight's book, High-Impact Instruction, absolutely delivers on the promise of its subtitle 'A Framework for Great Teaching.' It is breathtaking in its comprehensiveness and heartening in its practicality and detail. This is a must-read for teachers, coaches, administrators, and anyone interested in furthering what is known about effective teaching." -- Robert J. Marzano, CEO "Jim Knight's High Impact Instruction honors teachers as intelligent, complex, and dedicated people. While many have attempted to identify the attributes of effective instruction, Knight's work singularly acknowledges the basic human need to be our best selves. A wonderful addition to the literature!" -- Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director
