Description

To succeed, children of poverty need more than academic instruction; they need an atmosphere of hope. Drawing on their extensive work with high-poverty, high-performing schools, authors Robert D. Barr and Emily L. Gibson offer a blueprint for transforming low-performing schools into Cultures of Hope.

Building a Culture of Hope: Enriching Schools With Optimism and Opportunity identifies the essential social and emotional factors that lead to success: a sense of optimism; a sense of belonging; a sense of pride, self-esteem, and self-confidence; and a sense of purpose.

Using this fundamental guide, K-12 teachers and administrators can ensure that students thrive not only in school but in life.

Readers will learn:

  • Methods to gauge the state of a school's culture
  • Strategies behind successful high-poverty, high-performing schools
  • Pathways for emotional and social development from K-12 and beyond
  • Processes to help students plan for 21st century lives
