High Impact Instruction, Jim Knight

Unmistakable Impact

A Partnership Approach for Dramatically Improving Instruction

By Jim Knight

This book simplifies the process for becoming an Impact School through targeted, consistent professional learning that is done with teachers, not to teachers. Jim Knight provides tangible tools for translating staff members’ joy of learning into high-leverage practices that achieve dramatic results. Characteristics of Impact Schools include:

  • A focused, clearly defined improvement plan that takes into account the complexity of teaching and learning relationships
  • A school culture that encourages enrollment in ongoing professional development
  • Alignment of purpose and actions among all staff members
