The Curry/Samara Model (CSM) is yielding statistically significant results in terms of improving student performance on standardized tests, especially noticeable in low socio-economic environments. Factors involved in increasing student success rates include: (1) the design and implementation of curriculum units based on state standards; (2) the design and implementation of rubrics aligned to curriculum units and state standards; (3) the implementation of brief, monthly study groups which focus on embedding lessons with strategies that foster engaged learning; and (4) the technological support of UnitWriter software, StandardWriter software and digital vignettes of the teaching/learning process. According to multiple, research studies, the implementation and continued use of the Curry/Samara Model significantly raises student achievement.
