About the eBook

"All administrators and teacher leaders need to study Krovetz′s volume on how excellent schools with caring, collaborative, and challenging cultures build self-efficacy and resilience in students with diverse abilities and social backgrounds."
—James R. Bean, Professor of Leadership Studies
Lock Haven University

Give students the care and support they need to build a successful future!

This must-have handbook for education leaders illustrates the power of resiliency in the lives of students striving to succeed in school and life. Practical and reader-friendly, the text presents four elements that characterize resilient learning communities: care for students, high expectations, substantive support, and participation.

The second edition of Fostering Resiliency features an added case study, revisits schools from the first edition, and describes how some schools stayed on track, how others fell away and then recovered, and how others are struggling to come back. School leaders will also find:

Sample questionnaires, strategies, and tools for self-evaluation A list of critical elements for curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices Important considerations for teacher and administrator roles

This powerful book illustrates how significant student achievement is possible despite socioeconomic disadvantages and how participants at every level can cultivate transformative systemic change.
