What Works with Low Achievers? A Resource Guide. E&R Report No. 95-07.
Prohm, Bethany; And Others
Noting that only some of the approaches to helping low achievers learn more successfully have been systematically studied to determine their effectiveness, this paper summarizes what research indicates will help low achievers improve performance, and provides a resource list of books and reports with more details on the topic. Following a brief summary of what works with low achievers--strategies for students, parents, and community members, as well as educators--the paper excerpts strategies and characteristics from books and reports on effective teaching of at-risk students, including prevention and early intervention, improved environments, and practices for reclaiming minority students. The last portion of the paper provides an annotated bibliography of materials that address how to improve the achievement of at-risk students, and includes the sources summarized in the preceding section.
