Students With Interrupted Formal Education

Bridging Where They Are and What They Need

Brenda K. Custodio,

Students With Interrupted Formal Education: Bridging Where They Are and What They Need
 
 

New hope for our most vulnerable English learners

"One of the guiding principles of effective English language teaching is for educators to know their students. And that in a nutshell captures the value of this book. . . . The compassion that Custodio and O’Loughlin feel for our SIFE students, the commitment they have to educating them well, and the comprehension they have of the assets these learners bring to the classroom are evident in the writing, tools, and vignettes they share."

-Deborah J. Short

Under the best of circumstances, the academic demands of today’s classrooms can be daunting to our English learners. But for the tens of thousands of newly arrived students with interrupted formal education, even the social challenges can be outright overwhelming. 

Rely on this all-in-one guide from Brenda Custodio and Judith O’Loughlin for expert insight on how to build the skills these students need for success in school and beyond. Inside you’ll find

  • Essential background on factors leading to interrupted education
  • Specific focus on refugee children and Latino immigrants
  • Guidance on building internal resilience for long-term social and emotional health
  • Recommendations for creating supportive environments at the classroom, school, and district level

About one thing, Brenda and Judith are absolutely convinced: our SIFE students can learn and make progress, often at a remarkable speed.  But it’s up to us, their educators, to provide the time, attention, and a specific focus. Consider this book your first step forward.
