Overview

Teachers, counselors, psychologists, and school administrators have long known that human development, learning, and behavior are shaped by the continuous interplay between the individual and the overlapping, multi-layered contexts in which learning and behavior occur. A significant proportion of the nation's youth bring a broad range of learning and behavior problems to school with them each day, and it is evident to any teacher that solutions to the complex range of problems they encounter must be equally complex as well as comprehensive, multifaceted, and fully integrated with instructional improvements.

This new guide to student learning supports in the classroom and school-wide is designed to accompany a School Leader's Guide that together comprise a complete system for addressing barriers to learning. The book offers specific ideas, procedures, and resources for personalizing instruction and for providing special assistance, emphasizing the importance of matching student motivation, student development, and a comprehensive curriculum. It includes an extensive research base and more than 60 planning, and assessment tools that reflect the thinking of a growing group of stakeholders who understand that enabling all students to benefit more fully from their schooling depends on intervention strategies that go well beyond current instructional reforms. Closing the achievement gap and leaving no child behind must be more than maxims; they must represent a policy and practice agenda that effectively addresses barriers to learning and teaching.
