About the eBook

Embrace the changing suburbs by changing your school!

As your students evolve, has your school evolved with them? Schools across the country face sweeping demographic changes and a reshaping of suburban scenery into a more urban landscape. This unique book offers not only an explanation of the increasing diversity in student makeup, but also ideas for acting as an agent of positive change for your school and tools to implement those ideas. Shelley Wepner and the experts at The Changing Suburbs Institute recommend ways you can improve student achievement by

  • Developing a plan of action that addresses the need for more focused, culturally responsive student instruction
  • Creating a culture that celebrates diversity and values cultural awareness
  • Collaborating with universities and communities to promote professional development and student learning
  • Providing programs for English learners such as tutoring, the arts, and summer support
  • Involving parents to promote student achievement

Effective teaching and engaged learning flourish in schools where diversity and awareness are embraced. Changing Suburbs, Changing Students puts education in suburban America into perspective and gives you the tools to maintain high achievement for all!

"Any district dealing with changing cultures would find these ideas useful. The experiences and the scenarios are most applicable to schools facing an increase in ELL population."
—Martin J. Hudacs, Superintendent
Solanco School District, Quarryville, PA

"This book helps administrators of suburban school districts understand the complexities of the job they hold. More importantly, it provides specific solutions to the challenges they face every day."
—Ken Arndt, Superintendent
Community Unit School District #300, Carpentersville, IL
