9780072390704: What Teachers Need to Know about Children At-Risk

What do I do if I have an at-risk child in my classroom? As classrooms become more and more inclusive (including children with special needs in mainstream classrooms), today’s teachers need to have a strong background in the at-risk area. This text supplies practical solutions for how to address the needs of at-risk children effectively in the classroom. And it provides in-depth coverage of conditions that put children at risk. Each at-risk condition (e.g., homelessness, and recent immigrants) is examined by how it affects children at various developmental stages and how it affects the families. Hands-on suggestions in each chapter show how the classroom teacher can accommodate children living in these at-risk conditions. The text’s short length and inexpensive price make it an ideal supplement for a variety of Education courses. What Teachers Need to Know about Children At Risk is a book that students will want to bring with them into their own classrooms as a reference tool when they begin teaching. The text’s comprehensive coverage also allows it to be used as a main text for a course specifically on at-risk children.
