Adams, Dennis; Hamm, Mary
Rowman & Littlefield Education
This book builds on the social nature of learning to provide useful suggestions for reaching reluctant learners. It is based on the assumption that instruction that focuses on students' interests and builds on collaborative and differentiated learning will allow students to move from believing they "can't do mathematics or science" to a feeling of genuine achievement and confidence. It contains the following chapters: (1) Helping Struggling Students Learn Math and Science; (2) Student Inquiry in Math and Science; (3) Collaborative Learning: The Advantage of Small Learning Groups; (4) Differentiated Instruction: Multiple Paths to Learning and Assessment; (5) Reaching Reluctant Math Learners: Mathematical Reasoning and Collaborative Problem Solving; (6) Science for All Students: Collaborative Inquiry, Active Involvement, and Struggling Students; (7) Technology and Reluctant Learners: The Motivating and Collaborative Possibilities of Powerful Tools; and (8) A Project-Based Approach: Projects, Thematic Units, Collaboration, and Struggling Students.
