Direct connection with students’ unique identities is the key to teaching them.

Every student possesses a distinct combination of strengths and insecurities that will not respond to a one-size-fits-all teaching method. Reach Before You Teach shows educators how to form the nurturing, individualized connections that make students feel worthy, fulfilled, and ready to flourish as learners.

The book details:

  • Practical, empowering information about how a sense of self comes to be, and what threatens it.
  • Interventions that soften the myriad defenses students develop to protect themselves.
  • How to address the often-overlooked connections between physical, social, and emotional health and classroom performance.
