Overview

Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems

Whether students leave the classroom confident and goal-directed or frustrated and aimless depends on our ability to do two things: diagnose their needs and deliver support. This challenge can be daunting when students come to school with weak vocabulary, poor planning and organization skills, and problems with memory, impulse control, and attention span.

Causes & Cures reveals new neurological research about the root causes of these obstacles and lays out a comprehensive five-step protocol designed to help all educators identify and address common student academic and behavior issues.

This essential guide provides


* Illuminating case studies that walk you through the protocol in a variety of content areas and grade levels.

* Strategies and tools to help you diagnose root causes and develop targeted, effective interventions for your students.

* Guidance for extending individualized interventions to large groups.

Most of us went into teaching with the dream of helping all our students succeed. We can't let students who struggle wear us down or wait us out. No matter which subject or grade level you teach, this indispensable resource will show how you can help students overcome difficulties and experience real success in the classroom.
