Ready to Succeed in the Classroom: Summary Report. Teachers' Advice, Strategies and Tips to Help Students in the Foster Care System Succeed in the Classroom.
Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning
The issue of improving educational outcomes for children and youth in foster care is receiving some long-overdue attention, but the voices of classroom teachers have not been prominent in the discussions so far. To help fill this gap, a team from the Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning and funded by the Stuart Foundation convened six discussion groups in late 2009 to explore how teachers and foster children and youth interact in the classroom. The discussion group sessions were held in three California counties (Fresno, Orange, and Sacramento). This document highlights some of the general advice and specific strategies and tips that teachers offered during these discussions. [This report was prepared for the Stuart Foundation and the Ready to Succeed Leadership Team. For the full report, see ED511840.]
