– Narrowing the Achievement Gap for Under-Resourced Students – An all-in-one guide to academic, behavioral and community solutions!
This revised edition features effect sizes, 20+ new strategies and more. Varying levels of personal, social and material resources can create specific challenges for students, as well as for schools and communities. Educators are key: Teachers are integral to the lives of under-resourced young people who can and will achieve success if we understand them and understand how to guide and teach them. This revised edition of Research-Based Strategies helps us do all that and more.
The book is easy to use – you choose the academic, behavioral, or community concern or challenge. It takes you quickly through more than 75 research-based strategies, their explanations and associated research citations. You can zone in on one issue or use the book as a general guide. Teachers may modify the techniques to best suit their circumstances. Most of these strategies are effective with any student, regardless of resources. An at-a-glance menu of challenges, strategies and related research reduces your planning time and improves your effectiveness.
Develop more immediate, reliable intervention strategies and address students’ challenges before they become overwhelming.
