How to Rescue At-risk Students
Fresh & practical ways to enable failing students to succeed, from the nationally acclaimed author of CLASSROOM SUCCESS FOR THE LEARNING DISABLED & THE LEARNING DISABLED CHILD: WAYS THAT PARENTS CAN HELP. In this clear & illuminating book, Stevens draws on her thirty-five years of experience in the classroom & the insights of Henry Ford, Robert Frost, Marilyn Monroe, Vergil, & her own students, among others. The format of the book is itself a stunning example of the whole-brain, multi-sensory teaching techniques Stevens advocates. Must reading for elementary, middle school & high school teachers, who will find Stevens' open-minded attitude & "can-do" spirit contagious. "Good material for those who like to learn from concrete examples rather than theoretical analysis"--Consortium for Whole Brain Learning. "A remarkable woman..."--The Associated Press.
