Great Places to Learn: Creating Asset-Building Schools That Help Students Succeed with CDROM


Great Places to Learn: Creating Asset-Building Schools That Help Students Succeed with CDROM Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rooted in research on more than 2 million children about the effect of Developmental Assets® on fostering academic achievement and a healthy school climate, this foundational book is a powerful, positive guide to infusing assets into any school community. From building awareness to sustaining system-wide changes, a step-by-step outline guides school administrators, principals, and teachers through the process of integrating assets into their school, while firsthand accounts provide the creative inspiration to adapt the concept to any situation. The included CD-ROM features a wealth of reproducible handouts, charts, action lists, and assessment tools with tips and materials for everyone—from principals to bus drivers—included in the asset-building process. This new edition is updated with Search Institute's latest data and new discussions on bullying, school violence, and the effect of the No Child Left Behind Act on school communities. The handouts that were sold separately from the first edition are also included.
