David R. Snow

About the Author  |  Comments

About This Book

Classroom Strategies for Helping At-Risk Students is essential reading for busy teachers who want to use high-quality research to guide their practice. 

It synthesizes the results of 118 studies of students at risk of failure and identifies 6 general strategies proven to be positive interventions. The book describes each strategy, analyzes the research, and offers implications for deciding how to use the strategies. 

A discussion guide helps readers directly connect the research to their own classrooms. 

Whether you're a new or experienced teacher, this authoritative book will deepen your understanding of effective teaching methods and help you work more successfully with low-performing students.
