Classroom Strategies for Helping At-Risk Students
Snow, David R.
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
All that you need to assist the low-achieving students in your school are the six intervention strategies from this well-researched guide. Drawing from 118 studies of students at-risk of failure, David Snow guides you through the evidence-based strategies that are proven to be effective with students who are performing below standards: (1) Whole-class instruction that balances constructivist and behaviorist strategies; (2) Cognitively oriented instruction which combines cognitive and metacognitive strategies with other learning activities; (3) Small groups of either like-ability or mixed-ability students; (4) Tutoring that emphasizes diagnostic and prescriptive interactions; (5) Peer tutoring, including classroomwide peer tutoring, peer-assisted learning strategies, and reciprocal peer tutoring; and (6) Computer-assisted instruction where teachers have a significant role in facilitating activities. A set of practitioner implications accompanies each intervention so you can quickly decide how to use these interventions in your school or classroom.
