On the Outskirts of Hope; Educating Youth from Poverty Areas.
This volume emphasizes the mutual involvement of teacher and ghetto students in the teaching-learning process. The content is based on experience with two hundred young people over a three year period. The method of presentation is largely anecdotal interspersed with the author's comments. Chapters discuss the initial contacts with such students, ways to establish rapport, and communicating in the classroom. Also presented is material on developing content and structure, broadening perspective, and emerging changes in attitudes and behavior. (NH)
