Achievement for All
Keys to Educating Middle Grades Students in Poverty
What is your plan for helping students in poverty achieve the success in middle grades that will help them determine and realise their dreams and goals? In this book, renowned educator Ruby Payne and the Association for Middle Level Education have joined forces to provide you with information about
- the developmental processes of young adolescents
- what it means to be a young adolescent in poverty
- identifying resources and interventions for under-resourced youths
- helping students create their “future stories”
- requiring rigour in student work and performance
- developing expertise in teachers and administrators
- leading schools in strong, decisive ways to help all students achieve success.
Each of the five chapters focuses on a different significant development during early adolescence (years 10–15), listing the characteristics of the type of development, reviewing the research about that stage of development, discussing how under-resourcing impacts that type of development and, finally, suggesting interventions for the under-resourcing. The sixth chapter outlines school interventions that can improve the chances of success for under-resourced students.
