Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Condition: New. 285 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 1.2in.Its a familiar and seemingly logical model: to improve performance, identify weaknesses and target these problem areas. Could doing the opposite be a better way Licensed clinical psychologist Elsie Jones-Smith argues that strengths-based systems are indeed more effectivenot just in social work, where the philosophy became popular; or in the business world, where the concept is increasingly being embracedbut in the academic setting as well. Spotlighting the Strengths of Every Single Student: Why U. S. Schools Need a New, Strengths-Based Approach explains how and why a system that focuses on students strengths enables kids to be self-confident, goal-directed, and to possess a stronger sense of self-efficacy, self-control, and academic achievement. Jones-Smith also explains how such a system spurs appreciation and advancement of multiple intelligences, which in turn gives students the ability to address weaknesseson their own. Another plus: this approach has also been shown to generally reduce school disciplinary actions and increase class attendance time. This item ships from multiple locations.
