Building a Culture of Hope
Enriching Schools With Optimism and Opportunity
To succeed, children of poverty need more than academic instruction; they need an atmosphere of hope. Drawing on their extensive work with high-poverty, high-performing schools, authors Robert D. Barr and Emily L. Gibson offer a blueprint for transforming low-performing schools into Cultures of Hope.
Building a Culture of Hope: Enriching Schools With Optimism and Opportunity identifies the essential social and emotional factors that lead to success: a sense of optimism; a sense of belonging; a sense of pride, self-esteem and self-confidence; and a sense of purpose.
Using this fundamental guide, F–12 teachers and administrators can ensure that students thrive not only in school but in life.
Readers will learn
- methods to gauge the state of a school’s culture
- strategies behind successful high-poverty, high-performing schools
