How the Principal Can Provide Instructional Leadership for the Reluctant Learner.
Rancifer, Jesse L.
The principal, as an instructional leader of the school, should be certain that each reluctant learner is: (1) provided a school environment where students are rewarded often for their achievements and successes; (2) tangibly rewarded for academic achievement and appropriate behavior; (3) strengthened with strong ties between the home and the school by reaching out to the parents and the community; (4) recognized in assemblies, honor rolls and public lists for achievements; (5) engaged in relevant learning experiences; (6) required to know the expected behavior for achievement in the school; (7) required to do at least 30 minutes of homework per class daily; (8) provided an opportunity to participate in "course help sessions" conducted by teachers; (9) provided an opportunity for a "second chance" test when a test is failed; (10) given the opportunity to be caught doing something good and right; (11) involved in a school activity and some of its planning functions; and (12) provided a prevention of failure program in the first grade.
