For every teacher it’s different, but you know who they are for you—the students who are “hard to teach.” Maybe they’re reading far below grade level. Maybe they’re English learners. Maybe they have diagnosed learning disabilities or behavioral issues. Maybe they’re underachieving for reasons that are unknown. They have been overlooked or underserved or frustrated, and they’re not learning as they should. Until now. Until you. How to Reach the Hard to Teach presents a thoughtful and practical approach to achieving breakthrough success with linguistically and culturally diverse students who struggle in school. Combining elements of the SIOP® Model and the FIT Teaching® approach, authors Jana Echevarría, Nancy Frey, and Douglas Fisher take stock of what we know about excellent instruction and distill it into five guiding principles: 1. Set high expectations. 2. Provide access to the core curriculum. 3. Use assessment to inform instruction. 4. Attend to language development—both English and academic. 5. Create a supportive classroom climate. You’ll learn specific practices associated with each principle and see how real-life teachers are employing these practices in their classrooms so that all students have the opportunity to learn and receive optimal support for that learning. Every teacher has had the experience of seeing a “hard to teach” student in a new light and realizing all he or she might achieve. This book is about shining that light of possibility on the students who challenge us most, interrogating our beliefs, and taking action to ensure they receive the best instruction we have to offer.

Prepare and inspire teachers to ADAPT to the needs of all their students! Using the research-validated A-D-A-P-T model as an instructional guide, problem-solving approach and mnemonic, this new book clearly promotes the thoughtful practices and adaptations which have been proven as the most effective means to teach hard-to-reach students. It inspires classroom teachers to want to meet the challenges of students with disabilities and other learning challenges in their classroom and then gives them the tools to do it confidently. FEATURES: PREPARE ADAPT in Action is an illustrative section integrated directly within the book discussion, applying the ADAPT framework to the student and teacher introduced in the Opening Challenge case studies. In these features, the teacher “thinks out loud” using the ADAPT framework ADAPT Framework boxes provide a helpful summary chart that applies the ADAPT model to practical, frequently encountered teaching and learning topics INSPIRE Making a Difference features are first-person essays written by classroom teachers, special educators, and parents that offer their realistic insights and experiences about the impact of inclusive settings on the success of students with disabilities and other special learning needs and their families ADDITIONAL FEATURES Opening Challenge begins each chapter with a case study illustrating a teaching challenge, which is revisited throughout the chapter, providing a consistent situation in which to apply the ADAPT model What Works features present key research-to-practice findings or interesting, classroom-based statistics that are relevant to topics within each chapter Working Together features provide practical advice for how an idea or concept can be taught using a collaborative approach involving other school professionals and/or family members Instructional Activities, included in each of the “content area” chapters (10-13), present sample lessons for teaching skills in each area. Each activity indicates the instructional objective, instructional content, instructional materials, a means to deliver the instruction, and methods tomonitor progress Considering Diversity features highlight a specific idea from a cultural or linguistic perspective to help readers see examples of how to consider factors of diversity as they relate to academic instruction and management Tech Notes provide readers with information about assistive and instructional technologies that can be employed with students that have learning and behavior problems. Examples from classrooms are used to show practical applications CEC and INTASC Standards are correlated to each chapter in end-of-chapter charts to facilitate student understanding of the standards and principals that must be mastered by all beginning inclusive educators "The ADAPT feature offers a consistent strategy, it's very good. It seems quite different from many of the other intro books. It has more information, more research info and more practical information combined." Kathy McMahon Klosterman, Miami University

Multigrade Teaching In Sub Saharan Africa

In Africa, with the expansion of coverage of primary education in recent decades, many of the remaining out-of-school children are in hard to reach areas, with low population density and poor transport. Providing access to education is challenging in such contexts, as the population in any village is often too small to support a conventional primary school. One of the answers is the use of multigrade teaching, where one teacher works with students of two or more grades. This paper examines the practice of multigrade teaching in three African countries, Uganda, Senegal, and The Gambia. Although these three cases had very different approaches to multigrade, their experiences suggest that multigrade teaching is a promising and cost-effective option, but that successful implementation requires sustained support from policymakers, adequate training of teachers, and careful explanation of the approach to parents and the communities.
