Differentiating Instruction for At Risk Students

No single approach to teaching is effective with all children; each helps those with identified learning-style strengths to increase their knowledge base within the first three or four months of classroom use. Some learners will want to continue using a single method; others will prefer a variety of approaches. When the activities described herein are introduced to students whose learning styles they match, most will demonstrate strong abilities to learn and remember new and difficult content within the first four months of beginning—if not earlier. This book is written to prevent more children from becoming at risk and to help those who already have fallen behind their classmates and do not enjoy school. Each chapter describes different instructional strategies, a summary chart shows how to match at-risk learners with the specific approach most likely to substantially increase their academic achievement. These instructional approaches are designed to engage youngsters in action-oriented activities that gradually increase cognition and help children to internalize and retain what they are taught. Applications of these instructional strategies are suggested for increasing performance in literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies.

Students at Risk

The 1987 American Association of School Administrators survey on students at risk reported that school districts and administrators are alarmed about increasing dropout rates and are taking action to stem this tide. This report analyzes the problems of at-risk youth and recounts ameliorative efforts throughout the United States. Section A reviews various forces placing students at risk. Societal forces include poverty, the hardships accompanying minority status, and the weakening of home influence. Forces originating with schools include the troubled curriculum, inappropriate academic standards, and the insensitive school atmosphere. Section B describes private- and public-sector efforts to work with schools to help high risk students complete their education and enjoy better employment prospects. Section C explains how to identify at-risk students, outlines holistic approaches, and describes model programs addressing specific school and youth issues, such as teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, and suicide. This section closes by detailing four main approaches to deal with at-risk youth: alternative curriculum, counseling, tutorials, and work-related business partnerships. Appendix A reviews the Committee on Economic Development's "Children in Need" report. Appendix B describes Project Literacy U.S., while Appendices C and D provide a statement and comments on at-risk youth from the Forum of Educational Organization Leaders. Three other appendices concerning international policies, child abuse prevention, and developing an at-risk policy are included. (MLH)
