9780866569224: Promoting Success With At-Risk Students: Emerging Perspectives and Practical Approaches

Here is an authoritative book featuring effective strategies to prevent school related problems among at-risk students. In response to the major crisis in our educational system that includes high drop-out rates, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and severe discipline problems, leading scholars, researchers, and practitioners present specific, well-tested guidelines for the development and assessment of approaches to identify at-risk behaviors. They also discuss intervention and prevention techniques that have proven successful in dealing with students who display at-risk behaviors.

Promoting Success With At-Risk Students will assist school personnel in the use of behavior self-management techniques, individualized contingency contracts, peer tutoring and cooperative learning, tactics for reducing academic anxiety, and time management techniques for both teachers and students. This remarkable volume also provides guidelines for promoting parental involvement in education, preventing student crises and discipline problems, and fostering positive relationships between at-risk students and faculty, staff, and other students.

Special and regular education teachers, special education administrators, school psychologists, school counselors, and school social workers will find the contents of the 14-chapter volume both informative and indispensable for their work with at-risk students.
