  4. ASCD Arias Publication: Unlocking Student Potential

    When teachers recognise and focus on student strengths, they transform the learning environment into one of positivity and potential. Students begin to believe in themselves as capable, valued and respected and show more willingness to invest and engage in school. They perform better. They crave and enjoy academic challenge, and they delight in outdoing themselves. Focusing on strengths is a no-cost, highly effective, non-traditional way of addressing persistent underachievement. Drawing on authors Yvette Jackson and Veronica McDermott's experiences supporting the transformations of schools repeatedly labelled as underachieving, this book offers concrete ways to identify student strengths and then build on them in your classroom of school throughout the year.
