Helping children become better people is often a difficult goal in many classrooms. While many will have a naturally friendly and helpful nature, others may have problems at home or learning disabilities that make education more difficult. As a result, they may develop at-risk behaviors that may lead to them doing poorly in school or even dropping out. However, two methods (known as response to intervention and differentiated instruction or RTI and DI respectively) may help.
Teachers across the country are now utilizing this technique with their at risk students, and many of them are turning to this simple instructive DVD to learn more. Its programs features a variety of high-quality instruction from educational experts. This information is fine-tuned to target children who are at-risk or who may develop at-risk behaviors. Using RTI and DI helps to pin-point the nature of their problem in a unique and constructive way.
Some of the techniques you'll learn in this DVD included targeted interventions and assessments of your students' progression. It will also teach you how to implement these programs in the classroom, including ways to alter your educational approach to suit the varying needs of the population. For example, gifted learners will require a different approach than those who have learning disabilities.
So if you have a mixed classroom or simply need a little help reaching a child with learning disabilities or other at-risk behaviors, this DVD isn't a bad idea. It's also a nice gift for the teacher in your family.
