Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v8 n3 p295-308 2003
Examined a project in an elementary school serving diverse students to promote effective literacy practices among high-risk students. Data from teacher interviews and classroom observations indicated that successful teaching and learning depended on teachers' commitment to improving their instructional practices; selection of challenging and interesting curriculum; use of whole texts; implementation of meaningful, engaging literacy practices; use of alternative assessment; and prevailing rhetoric that all children can succeed.
