Restructuring To Educate the Urban Learner: A Decisionmaking Framework. Study Guide. An Invitation To Dream, Think and Learn.
Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
The Urban Education Project developed by Research for Better Schools, Inc., has focused on meeting the needs of urban students in a changing and demanding society by creating the Urban Education Framework, which presents a new vision of the urban learner as culturally diverse, capable, motivated, and resilient. This vision suggests that urban educators build on the strengths of the urban learner. This study guide contains a series of readings that can help educators prepare for the restructuring that is necessary to address the needs of the urban learner. Questions follow each of the following selections: (1) "Russell: A Maverick?" (case study); (2) "Cultural Diversity and Learning"; (3) "Unrecognized Abilities/Underdeveloped Potential"; (4) "Enhancing Ability Development through Motivation and Effort"; and (5) "Resilience." One figure illustrates the restructuring model. Contains a 96-item bibliography that provides suggestions for further reading. (SLD)
