Have you ever looked at a struggling student and asked — “Could something have been done to steer this child in a different direction?”
“Were there red flags?”
“Are the preventative strategies strong enough to fight off looming struggle?”
The answers — yes, yes and yes.
You’ll take comfort in our preventative, proactive and positive approach to engaging struggling students. All too often, programs swing into high gear after students hit rock bottom. Our approach not only stops struggle from occurring in the first place, but also enables struggling students to get back on track faster.
How to Support Struggling Students focuses on ways to intervene effectively with students who show signs of struggle. This practical guide offers self-assessment resources, worksheets, checklists, summaries, tips and links to online resources that can be used by individual teachers, for learning with colleagues and for empowering your school team.
