Lorna M. Earl and Steven Katz show educators how to become comfortable with data and provide valuable tools for school improvement teams to use in their work, including:
o Vignettes to support group discussion
o Activities for practicing the ideas and concepts in the book
o Task sheets
o Short case studies with actual school data that show how the full process works in a school
