Cultivating Students of Color: Strategies for Ensuring High Academic Achievement in Middle and Secondary Schools
Mayer, Anysia P.; Tucker, Shuana K.
Journal of School Leadership, v20 n4 p470-490 Jul 2010
Opportunity gaps are not just a phenomenon that exists among low-achieving and average students; they are a significant feature among high-performing students as well. We present a review of research-based practices that support students of color such that they achieve at high levels in middle and secondary schools. We identify five key strategies for success: close monitoring of students' academic and social growth, access to high-quality curriculum, appropriate scaffolding to ensure academic success, academically oriented supportive peer groups, and opportunities for social and emotional growth.
