Back to Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems
Poor study habits, inattention, and disruptive behavior are really symptoms of deeper, more critical problems that keep students from succeeding in school. This resource helps you identify the causes of such problems and address them with specific and practical interventions. Drawing from academic and neurological research, Margaret Searle explains how to get at the root causes of
- Planning and problem-solving issues;
- Poor memory and organization skills;
- Irresponsible and unmotivated behaviors;
- Problems with focusing attention; and
- Weak impulse control and self-monitoring.
A five-step protocol leads you from observed problem to root causes with intervention plans that will work. Case studies walk you through the protocol in a variety of content areas and grade levels, so you see exactly how this process works in contexts that are real and relevant to every K–12 educator.
