This last week I attended a workshop called Under-Resourced Learners: 8 Strategies to Boost Student Achievement. It was absolutely fabulous and entertaining. This would make a fabulous book study for your campus.
In the book: Under-Resourced Learners identifies resources all students need and delivers proven practical strategies for building up these resources for every student in every school. Teachers and administrators will find a gold mine of best practices and interventions to help embed those success strategies in their curricula, and in the minds and lives of their students.
You'll discover new ways to:
~Assess student resources to determine the best strategies and interventions
~Build mental, language, relationship, and other resources into your teaching
~Work more effectively with parents and community representatives
~Increase support systems for all students and their families
~Monitor every student s progress and adjust efforts to increase student performance
