Summary

In their new book, Bergmann and Brough provide a clear path to follow for helping your at-risk students achieve success in and out of the classroom. Packed with classroom-tested, practical strategies and lesson plans for teaching respect, responsibility, resilience, reading, and other essential skills to at-risk students, this is a must-have book for educators at all levels.

Use the plans alone, or as part of a unit. Either way, the tools for success in this book will help you positively impact the lives of at-risk students every day. Each chapter is dedicated to a different skill and offers easy-to-implement activities and strategies based on achieving success in that essential skill.

For example: 

  • Strategies for establishing positive peer relationships
  • Cooperative treasure hunting for resilience building
  • Keys to structured role-playing for conflict resolution

Each chapter includes a component about what parents and caregivers can do to help their at-risk children achieve success, and provides a basis for effective communication between educator and parent, an important piece of the puzzle often overlooked.
