English | 2013 | pages: 155 | ISBN: 1416616284 | PDF | 26 mb
In this inspiring and thought-provoking follow-up to his 2009 best-seller Motivating Black Males to Achieve in School and in Life, Baruti Kafele makes the case that the "attitude gap" that often affects underperforming students can only be closed if educators first help students develop the will to strive for excellence. According to Kafele, educators can achieve remarkable results by focusing on five key areas:
The teachers attitude toward students
The teachers relationship with students
The teachers compassion for students
The learning environment
The cultural relevance of instruction
Replete with practical strategies and illustrative anecdotes drawn from the authors 20-plus years as a teacher and principal in inner-city schools, Closing the Attitude Gap offers a wealth of lessons and valuable insights that educators at all levels can use to fire up their students passion to learn.
