Assessing and Building Resilience in Low-Income and First-Generation College Bound Students
Broadcast on November 21, 2013, this hour-long webinar focuses on identifying the obstacles students face outside the classroom and how these can impact their academic achievement.
Longitudinal studies have demonstrated that assessing a student’s resiliency can reliably predict future academic performance and empower educators to identify underlying issues before they manifest as academic struggles.
During the webinar speakers Heath Alexander, Director of State Outreach Initiatives, Council for Opportunity in Education, and Melissa Schlinger, Vice President, National Accounts for ScholarCentric will share:
- Relevant research findings.
- Resiliency assessment tools and data implications.
- Classroom strategies that improve resilience and academic achievement for middle and high school students.
