STANDING IN THE GAP
Across the nation, schools are demonstrating that all students can reach high standards, that all children can succeed, that the gap between white and minority students, poor and affluent, can be closed. This book distills the lessons that can be learned from those schools in a common-sense guide that can be used by practitioners. It gives principals and teachers, school board members and administrators, a guide for putting to work in the own schools the practices that really make a difference in student achievement. It can be done... it must be done... and this book will show you how it can be done in your school, with your students.Order Our Book Amazon
YOU CAN GET IN THE WAY
Through stories, research, and strategies, Dr. John W. Hodge shows how children can be successful despite the risk factors that typically hold them back. Children who overcome usually have one thing in common: the presence of educators, counselors, social workers, community advocates, and family members - people just like you - who can see beyond demographic and social limitations to the unlimited potential that lies within the hearts and minds of all children.
