About the eBook

"My experience teaching the lessons to students helped me understand the importance of self-reflection. The students were able to reflect on their own abilities in learning. Defining who you are as a learner is informative and empowering."
—Robert Grubb, Teacher
Los Angeles City Unified School District, CA

"Teaching students how to be ′lifelong learners′ can be realized by helping them develop a sense of responsibility for their learning. These lessons provide that opportunity for students."
—Paige A. McGinty, Doctoral Student in Teacher Education, Multicultural Societies
University of Southern California

Discover how the Parallel Curriculum Model can help urban students achieve!

Teachers in urban schools often find that their students have learning needs that go beyond a standards-based curriculum. Originally developed for gifted learners, the Parallel Curriculum Model is highly effective for helping students of all backgrounds reach new levels of achievement. This book presents a high-quality curriculum that builds key learning skills for academic success for students of diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Easily taught alongside a regular curriculum for Grades K–8, this hands-on resource focuses on student potential in four areas: as scholars, active classroom participants, self-advocates, and articulate presenters. Educators will learn how to forge connections between standard curriculum content and the personal traits that students need to thrive in school and beyond. Readers will find:

  • An enriched, multidisciplinary curriculum for developing resiliency, self-motivation, and collaboration skills in urban youth
  • Sixteen field-tested and ready-to-use lesson plans and related reproducibles
  • Thought-provoking questions and interactive exercises that promote critical and creative thinking and classroom discussion

Mentor your students in developing lifelong skills for learning and success through a holistic approach that challenges and inspires.
