From Rage to Hope: Strategies for Reclaiming Black & Hispanic Students.
Schools are not serving our Black and Hispanic youth well, as standardized test scores reflect. The problem of educating these students must be addressed. This book offers suggestions to educators who have the interest, intent, and inspiration to facilitate achievement motivation among these students, but who may lack the information or teaching techniques. The first three chapters lay a foundation for implementation of the strategies and activities that are suggested in chapters 4, 5, 6, and 7. The final two chapters provide thoughts for the future and an opportunity for professional assessment. The following are the chapter titles: (1) "Dealing with Differences"; (2) "The Impact of Student Self-Image on Achievement and Motivation"; (3) "School-Related Obstacles to Achievement"; (4) "Motivating the Un-Motivated"; (5) "Addressing the Need for Discipline"; (6) "Creating a Good School and Classroom Climate"; (7) "Strengthening the Home-School Bond"; (8) "Focusing on the Future"; and (9) "Focusing on Your Efforts." Chapter 9 contains worksheets for the teacher to evaluate his or her professional efforts. Contains 111 references. (SLD)
