Motivating Underachievers, Revised Expanded Edition (New)
Carolyn Coil
Underachievement can manifest itself in various ways in students and is often used as an umbrella term to describe many types of problems. The focus of this book, however, is on those students who have a significant discrepancy between their potential and their achievement. With 220 strategies, this revised and expanded edition aims to provide parents and educators with resources to promote growth and achievement in these students. The areas of building self-esteem, improving study skills, remediating academic weaknesses, and providing motivation are targeted. The author also offers practical strategies as well as reproducible resources for each area, and each strategy is numbered for easy reference. Sections on working with parents of underachievers and facilitating change and flexibility within the school system are also included. (112 pages)
