  34. HSTW SouthernRegionalEducationBoard High Schools That Work:Key Practices The following are the HSTW Key Practices that provide direction and meaning to comprehensive school improvement and student learning: • High expectations — Motivate more students to meet high expectations by integrating high expectations into classroom practices and giving students frequent feedback. • Program of study — Require each student to complete an upgraded academic core and a concentration. • Academic studies — Teach more students the essential concepts of the college-preparatory curriculum by encouraging them to apply academic content and skills to real—world problems and projects. • Career/technical studies — Provide more students access to intellectually challenging career/technical studies in high-demand fields that emphasize the higher-level mathematics, science, literacy and problem-solving skills needed in the workplace and in further education. • Work—based learning — Enable students and their parents to choose from programs that integrate challenging high school studies and work-based learning and are planned by educators, employers and students.

  35. HSTW SouthernRegionalEducationBoard High Schools That Work:Key Practices • Teachers working together — Provide teams of teachers from several disciplines the time and support to work together to help students succeed in challenging academic and career/technical studies. Integrate reading, writing and speaking as strategies for learning into all parts of the curriculum and integrate mathematics into science and career/technical classrooms. • Students actively engaged — Engage students in academic and career/technical classrooms in rigorous and challenging proficient-level assignments using research—based instructional strategies and technology. • Guidance — Involve students and their parents in a guidance and advisement system that develops positive relationships and ensures completion of an accelerated program of study with an academic or career/technical concentration. Provide each student with the same mentor throughout high school to assist with setting goals, selecting courses, reviewing the student's progress and suggesting appropriate interventions as necessary. • Extra help — Provide a structured system of extra help to assist students in completing accelerated programs of study with high-level academic and technical content. • Culture of continuous improvement — Use student assessment and program evaluation data to continuously improve school culture, organization, management, curriculum and instruction to advance student learning.
