This book is about shining the light of possibility on underachieving students and taking action to ensure they receive the best instruction we have to offer. How to Reach the Hard to Teach presents a thoughtful and practical approach to achieving breakthrough success with linguistically and culturally diverse students who are struggling in school.

Combining elements of the SIOP® model and the FIT Teaching® approach, authors Jana Echevarría, Nancy Frey, and Douglas Fisher distil what we know about excellent instruction into five guiding principles:

  • Set high expectations.
  • Provide access to the core curriculum.
  • Use assessment to inform instruction.
  • Attend to language development—both English and academic.
  • Create a supportive classroom climate.

You’ll learn specific practices and see how real-life teachers are employing these in their classrooms to ensure all students have the opportunity and the means to learn.
