This unique resource provides teachers with the tools they need to help all students reach higher levels of achievement. The authors present insights and strategies based on both their own experience, and current research about how teachers can best help struggling students become active, engaged learners. Discussion of the challenges faced by urban students and the importance of high expectations is followed by guidelines for how teachers can most effectively interact with their students.

In addition, the authors present:

o An extensive collection of practical strategies to increase student engagement

o Develop students' cognitive skills

o Empower students to take responsibility for their own learning

Numerous sample lesson plans for primary, middle, and secondary levels show teachers how to implement the strategies presented. The revised edition includes updated research, expanded explanations of effective strategies, additional lesson plans, and a new chapter on professional development.
