Description

'Presents an abundance of effective strategies for adapting instruction such that children with disabilities, those who exhibit behavioral or motivational problems, or those who speak a language different from English will succeed in every classroom. If American schools are truly to educate all children well, then all teachers need to use these powerful ideas for differentiating instruction effectively. This text provides the tool kit every elementary teacher needs to achieve this goal' - Richard Allington, Professor of Education, University of Tennessee, Knoxville Teachers have the power to change lives, particularly for struggling learners who have difficulty understanding how education broadens their future opportunities. This book offers educators a deeper awareness of the role they play in breaking the cycle of failure for students who are unsuccessful in school. Written in a supportive tone, this volume helps primary school teachers effectively reach and teach struggling students. With real-life vignettes, in-depth case studies, and reflective practice scenarios and questions, this book includes: - A broad spectrum of alternative instructional strategies for all learners, including fostering parental involvement, multi-tiered instruction, peer learning models, and universal design for learning - Effective approaches for fostering student success before a child is referred to special education - Practices and programmes that address the needs of at-risk populations, including English language learners and other children of non-dominant cultures, children living in poverty, and learners with disabilities - Specific interventions and positive support for learners with behavioural challenges Promising Practices for Elementary Teachers is an empowering resource for educators determined to bring hope and encouragement to all learners.
