Synopsis: Turning Points 2000 expands on the ideas contained in the landmark 1989 Carnegie Report on improving education for young adolescents by blending the wisdom of both the latest research and the best practice. Based on the experiences of hundreds of middle-grade schools, the book's seven key recommendations outline how best to improve the educational experiences of middle grade students. Touching on everything from curriculum and instruction to engaging families and empowering teachers and administrators, this publication synthesizes lessons learned from educators attempting to improve middle grade education across the country over the past decade.
