Marginal Learners: Identification, Prevention, and Intervention. An AEL School Excellence Workshop.
Fleming, Douglas S.; Hange, Jane E.
The purpose of the workshops presented in this notebook is to: (1) help educators learn about the needs of marginal learners (described as students, preschool through twelfth grade, whose academic performance may be less than that of their classmates or whose behavior may interfere with learning); (2) identify proven practices in both classroom and school-level intervention programs; and (3) begin planning improvement efforts based on local conditions. Each of six content modules is designed as a 3- to 4-hour focused workshop that can be presented individually or as part of a series. The six content modules cover the following topics: (1) identifying marginal learners; (2) motivating marginal learners; (3) adapting classroom practices to accommodate marginal learners; (4) assessing district policies and programs for marginal learners; (5) meeting the needs of marginal learners: a range of approaches; and (6) the role of school leaders in supporting programs for marginal learners. Each module contains the following components: the module description; training agenda for a focused workshop; trainer's instructions for conducting all activities; participant handouts; and camera-ready transparency masters. Modules 7 and 8 provide: information on promoting, planning, preparing, and evaluating marginal learner workshops; and a bibliography and collection of background readings for trainers. (LL)
