Based on the findings of an eight-year research-practice partnership, Systems for Instructional Improvement proposes a series of specific, empirically grounded recommendations for advancing instruction at scale. The authors outline the elements of a coherent instructional system; describe productive practices for school leaders in supporting teachers' growth; and discuss the role of district leaders in developing school-level capacity for instructional improvement.

"Systems for Instructional Improvement describes the ways that typically isolated elements of practice interact to create the space in which learning happens. The authors map out a pathway for district and school personnel who hope to design instructional systems with the intentionality that will generate results."
--Nate Schwartz, chief research and strategy officer, Tennessee Department of Education

"Systems for Instructional Improvement vividly illustrates the systemic nature of successful school improvement efforts and the multiple roles that university partners can play in supporting those efforts. The Theory of Action and research-based recommendations from the MIST team's research-practice partnership are invaluable resources for school and district leaders and educational researchers committed to understanding and supporting instructional improvement at scale."
--Hilda Borko, professor of education, Stanford University Graduate School of Education

"Cobb, Jackson, Henrick, and Smith provide a detailed roadmap for organizing a coherent system to improve adult practice in service of excellent instruction for every child. System leaders, principals, teachers, and everyone who wants to see our kids more engaged in rich experiences every day would do well to follow the path laid out by the authors of this book."
--Joshua P. Starr, chief executive officer, PDK International
