  • Slavin, R. E., & Fashola, O. S. (1998). Show me the evidence: Proven and promising programs for America's schools. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin Press.

The authors argue that the daunting task of improving teaching and learning in all schools might be accomplished more effectively if schools choose from rigorously researched and well-documented reform designs that provide networks of support for implementation. They also suggest that the adoption of these well-evaluated programs by policy makers would lead to more efficient and effective use of professional development funds. This book presents information on widely available programs that the authors feel have been tested against a set of rigorous standards of evidence.
