Simple Strategies for Teaching Children at Risk, K-5

About the eBook

Easy to implement strategies teachers can use right now

While opinions differ on how to define students who are "at risk." most teachers agree that they are seeing more children hit roadblocks due to limited academic experiences, challenging environments, ADHD, or behavioral problems. Teachers often feel underprepared to connect with these students and improve their learning experiences.

In their latest work, Melissa Stormont and Cathy Newman Thomas draw upon their field experiences within special education and psychology to offer K–5 teachers practical tools for building relationships with these children. Readers will discover simple strategies for developing students’ academic aptitude and social behavior as well as how to

  • Identify who is at risk for failure and why
  • Build positive teacher-student relationships and establish supportive groups among children
  • Use data-based decision making
  • Provide students with increased time to practice with feedback
  • Incorporate technology supports
  • Know when and how to involve professionals and families

Moving well beyond mere theory, teachers who are working amid reforms and sweeping cuts can implement these strategies immediately and make a real difference in children′s lives. Get started today!

"This is a great book with which to start because it covers the basics—the foundation that needs to be in place before the academics can take hold for a student at risk. The ideas are easy to follow and could be implemented with little or, in some cases, no additional prep—that’s a bonus for an already busy teacher."
