Life Skills Yield Stronger Academic Performance
Lindsey, Tommie, Jr.; Mabie, Benjamin
Phi Delta Kappan, v93 n5 p33-36 Feb 2012
After one failed attempt to buttress the prospects of black males at a racially diverse high school, teachers fashioned a life skills class that was heavy on racial pride and personal insight. In so doing they borrowed liberally from the Motivational Framework for Culturally Responsive Teaching by Margery Ginsberg and Raymond Wlodkowski that leans on four important supports: establishing inclusion, building security, enhancing meaning and engendering competence. The result was much stronger academic performance.
