This practical resource shows what teachers can do to combat underachievement and disadvantage in schools and in early years to secondary education. Written by an experienced teacher, teacher educator and chartered psychologist, the book highlights effective teaching and learning methods that can be used to overcome barriers to learning, satisfy different learning needs and help students achieve their full potential.

Packed with up-to-date research, useful guidance and examples, the book explores what schools have done and what they can do without need for extra resourcing. It includes case studies that examine the types of underachievement patterns that are found across age ranges and, by detailing approaches in subject teaching, defines the nature of effective learning and shows what strategies can be used to meet these criteria. Moreover, the chapters provide:

  • An exploration into the central needs of underachieving and disadvantaged learners across the ability range
  • Information about how to audit the provision and the needs
  • Accessible resources for the classroom changes that need to be made to the education and training of teachers

Tackling Disadvantage and Underachievement in Schools is essential reading for teachers in early years education, primary and secondary schools, teachers in training and their educators, as well as leaders, policymakers, researchers and anyone interested in improving performance in schools.
