Working With At Risk Students

Remember the Pygmalion Theory of Teacher Expectations?

BELIEVE

Do you BELIEVE in your students?

Do you BELIEVE that all students can succeed?

Do you BELIEVE in yourself as a teacher?

Do you BELIEVE that you can make a difference in the life of a student?

slide7

Do you still BELIEVE in a student when he/she:

Skips classes?

Tells you to $!*%&!* YOURSELF?

Is apathetic, lazy, and just does not care?

Lies, cheats, and steals things from you?

Interferes with the learning of other students?

Makes you dread going to work?

Makes you wish you had never become a teacher?

7 Keys to Better Listening
  • Listening is not passive – it is active
  • Listen for unspoken fears, concerns, moods, and aspirations
  • Good Listening requires great wisdom
  • Listen to others with respect and validation
  • Listen without thinking of how you are going to respond
  • Listen for tell tale signs of impending trouble
  • Listen with optimism and positive human regard

Case Study #1: Meet Tiffany

York Catholic District School Board

Each group has a question

Identify some of the factors affecting Tiffany’s success.

How do these factors influence Tiffany’s academic success?

 How can you as an educator make a difference for Tiffany? Consider teaching methods and differentiation in your answer.

 Identify the factors affecting Tiffany’s success that we, as educators, can control.

 How do the barriers to Tiffany’s success manifest themselves in the classroom?

slide12

Case Study #2: Reflect, retell, & relate

Think, Pair & Share Activity

Think about an at risk student that you went to high school with, or an at risk student that you taught during one of your practice teaching blocks. With another student:

Identify the nature of the at risk student

Identify teacher strategies that worked well to support that student’s success. Why did these work?

Identify teacher strategies that did not work well to support that student’s success. Why did these not work?

As a teacher, would it be easy to BELIEVE in this particular student? Why or why not?

slide13

Ontario Association for Students At Risk

URL:http://www.oasar.org/

We are dedicated to the needs of students at risk; in risky places; in risky times.

Parents, teachers, youth workers, administrators, ministry personnel or any others who care about students at risk register for our conferences.

Many of us work in isolated situations and would like to get together to:  discuss, learn, laugh, cry, teach, enjoy, eat, network, listen and speak.

You are not alone.

Come and join others with similar needs and interests.

Food for Thought!

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

Leo Buscaglia (1924-199)

(New York Times best selling author and former

Professor of Special Education at the University of S. California)
