About this product
- DescriptionThis valuable resource (recommended for K-5 classroom teachers, special educators, and counseling staff) is divided into four parts: (1) culturally responsive instruction, (2) effective academic instruction, (3) improving social competencies, and (4) parental involvement. The book's 11 chapters detail important strategies, such as providing effective academic interventions; teaching with high expectations; keeping students academically engaged in meaningful learning activities; monitoring progress; providing effective schoolwide behavioral interventions; and establishing positive relationships with families. The authors provide case examples and step-by-step instructions to help educators apply the strategies presented. This book is the result of the authors' intensive consulting and research in inner-city elementary schools. Research shows that many poor children come to school unprepared for the academic and behavioral demands of the classroom. Their language and readiness skills are substantially behind those of their more affluent peers. As time goes by, many students fall progressively further and further behind and face an ever-widening achievement gap. They are often placed in special education classes and are disproportionately impacted by disciplinary referrals, suspensions, and expulsions. This is especially the case for African American males.
