ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
This volume focuses on both the background causes that place students "at risk" and specific strategies that have been shown to help address students' academic risk. Various chapters cover such key topics as the extent and consequences of risk in U.S. education, resiliency among at-risk students, the effectiveness of various interventions at reducing risk, and systemic supports for overcoming educational risk. Issues in the educating of African American, Hispanic, and second-language learning students are each discussed, as well as Title I, technology education, and professional development in high poverty contexts.
