The real reason why dinosaurs became extinct!
Best Definition of At-Risk Students:
(as determined by the class)
Remember the Pygmalion Theory of Teacher Expectations?
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?
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?

Identify some of the factors affecting Tiffany’s success.
How do these factors influence Tiffany’s academic success?

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?
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?
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.
“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.”

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