Item description

Create an integrated system of support for struggling students! Get inspired to make a significant change in your school's culture to engage developing minds and champion all learners, regardless of socioeconomic factors.

Based on Lois Brown Easton's experience working with disengaged learners, this insightful resource helps educators make positive connections with youngsters of all ages who are at risk of failing or dropping out.

Featuring the voices of educators and students, this invaluable text covers methods for improving the schoolwide climate in ways that support all students and for creating a learning environment that promotes academic, personal, and social growth.

The author illustrates how to make meaningful changes in curriculum and instruction and examines the importance of:
  • Teacher-student relationships
  • Innovative teaching strategies for struggling learners
  • Developing self-directed learners
  • Using appropriate assessments for students with learning difficulties
