Back to How to Support Struggling Students (Mastering the Principles of Great Teaching series)
Kicking off a new ASCD series based on Robyn R. Jackson’s best-seller Never Work Harder Than Your Students and Other Principles of Great Teaching
, this guide helps you become an expert in providing proactive learning support—what great teachers do to give students the right kind of assistance and get those who are struggling back on track. The authors take you through the steps of building your plan and provide all the strategies you need to support students before, during, and after instruction, including
- Activating background knowledge, preparing students with advance organizers, and helping them pre-learn key vocabulary.
- Establishing “red flags” that identify when students need interventions and quickly getting them back on course.
- Applying remediation for the few students who need help the most.
Regardless of the grade level or subject you teach, get concepts and strategies you need to support students as they learn and intervene effectively with students who show signs that they are headed for failure. The guide’s self-assessment, worksheets, checklists, summaries, tips, and links to online resources make it perfect for learning with colleagues or guiding your own professional development.
