The Empty Desk: Identifying and Assisting the At-Risk Student (Enhanced DVD)
School should serve as a positive place that offers your children or students a supporting environment that encourages their positive growth. Unfortunately, many students experience problems in their educational environment, which may be caused by problems at home, difficulties getting along with fellow students, or problems with their family life. Students that fall under this heading are often called “at risk” students because they could develop problematic behaviors that could impact their future.
In this hard-hitting program, parents and teachers will learn about the various types of at-risk students and the kinds of behaviors and activities that can lead to the development of these behaviors. You will learn how to quickly identify a student who is at-risk for failure or dropping out and find ways to re-engage them with their education. The idea here is to build a strong teacher and student relationship that will withstand their personal difficulties.
You will also develop skills in developing coping mechanisms for your students that will give them the strength they need to overcome their setbacks and become a positive member of society. Each DVD comes with free online access to a worksheet that can be printed off and distributed to your students. This can help serve as a great lessons for students who are struggling at home and need to know they have a helping hand nearby.
