Reducing the Risk, Increasing the Promise: Strategies for Student Success
Bergmann, Sherrel; Brough, Judith Allen
Eye on Education
In their new book, Bergmann and Brough provide a clear path to follow for helping your at-risk students achieve success in and out of the classroom. Packed with classroom-tested, practical strategies and lesson plans for teaching respect, responsibility, resilience, reading, and other essential skills to at-risk students, this is a must-have book for educators at all levels. Use the plans alone, or as part of a unit. Either way, the tools for success in this book will help you positively impact the lives of at-risk students every day. Each chapter is dedicated to a different skill and offers easy-to-implement activities and strategies based on achieving success in that essential skill. For example: (1) Strategies for establishing positive peer relationships; (2) Cooperative treasure hunting for resilience building; and (3) Keys to structured role-playing for conflict resolution. Each chapter includes a component about what parents and caregivers can do to help their at-risk children achieve success, and provides a basis for effective communication between educator and parent, an important piece of the puzzle often overlooked. Chapters contained are: (1) Who Are These Students and Why Should We Listen to Them? (2) Helping Students Develop Resilience; (3) Helping Students Develop Resourcefulness; (4) Helping Students Develop Responsibility; (5) Helping Students Develop Positive Relationships; (6) Helping Students Develop Respect; and (7) Helping Students Develop Reading Skills.
