Teachers have the power to change lives, particularly for struggling learners who have difficulty understanding how education broadens their future opportunities. This book offers educators a deeper awareness of the role they play in breaking the cycle of failure for students who are unsuccessful in school.
Written in a supportive tone, this volume helps primary school teachers effectively reach and teach struggling students. With real-life vignettes, in-depth case studies, and reflective practice scenarios and questions, this book includes:
- A broad spectrum of alternative instructional strategies for all learners, including fostering parental involvement, multi-tiered instruction, peer learning models, and universal design for learning
- Effective approaches for fostering student success before a child is referred to special education
- Practices and programmes that address the needs of at-risk populations, including English language learners and other children of non-dominant cultures, children living in poverty, and learners with disabilities
- Specific interventions and positive support for learners with behavioural challenges
Promising Practices for Elementary Teachers is an empowering resource for educators determined to bring hope and encouragement to all learners.
