Engaging the Disengaged

96 pages • 8½ x 11
Based on the premise that teachers need to engage with students as more than just pupils, this book illustrates how to help students make connections and care about their work. It offers effective ways to close "the achievement gap," eliminate "the fourth-grade slump," and reach "students at risk." A comprehensive overview of school experiences, the book argues for ways that teachers can change the way they view student learning, and create more successful learning situations. It discusses the importance of acknowledging what unique attributes each person brings to the classroom, and shares poignant moments of unanticipated learning and re-engagement.
