Slavin, R.E. and Madden, N.A. (2006) Reducing the gap: Success for All and the achievement of African-American students. The Journal of Negro Education, 75 (3). pp. 389-400. ISSN 0022-2984
Success for All is a comprehensive reform model that uses cooperative learning, tutoring, family support services, and extensive professional development to help high-poverty schools succeed with their students. This article reviews research on Success for All with African American students, focusing on evidence that Success for All reduces the achievement gap between African American and White students. More than 40 studies, including a national randomized experiment, have found positive effects of Success for All in schools serving many African Americans. Implications of these findings for policy and practice are discussed.
