Different classrooms and schools produce very different results even when their student populations are similar. Three primary sets of activities addressed questions related to determining what accounts for these differences in terms of teacher professionalism and instructional strategies.

The studies were conducted on-site in four states -- California, Florida, New York, and Texas -- and included analyses across sites and of national surveys as well as other studies conducted by the Center. The major questions were:

What are the essential features that lead to exemplary instruction in English?
What role does interdisciplinary instruction play in students’ acquisition of English skills?
How do various innovations relate to student achievement?
