Identifying and Motivating Underachievers. Focus On
Rahal, Michelle Layer
Educational Research Service
Why do some students go above and beyond what is asked of them while others do just enough to get by? This "Focus On" debunks common underachievement myths (such as "some students aren't capable of learning" or "underachievers are lazy") and looks at ways to create a motivating classroom by providing teachers with effective strategies for engaging the multiple types of underachievers. Engaging questions throughout the publication are designed to draw all teachers into reflection and discussion on motivating underachievers. (Contains 4 web resources.)
