Every Child Deserves A Chance: Guidelines for Effective Teaching.
Guidelines for effectively teaching minority students, Grades K-6, are presented in this manual, which is divided into six sections. Each section presents a different teaching principle, explains the rationale behind it, and provides a list of suggestions and/or comments from teachers. The six principles are: (1) Every child can learn if you have high expectations for all of your students. (2) Every child can learn if you approach instruction systematically with clear goals and objectives, emphasizing time-on-task and achievement. (3) Every child can learn if your instruction is multiculturally based. (4) Every child can learn if you accurately assess student achievement and use that data appropriately. (5) Every child can learn if you establish a positive classroom climate that includes maintaining firm, fair, and consistent discipline practices. (6) Every child can learn if you establish a positive home-school relationship. (KH)
