Imagine all students starting the school day with a healthy breakfast in a safe neighborhood. Imagine all parents knowing that their children are receiving the best that education has to offer and will be prepared for higher education. Imagine every teacher with the training to help every child succeed in school and to set and pursue goals and dreams for the future.
Smart. Youth Solutions to the Achievement Gap (A Facilitator Guide), along with the accompanying student handbook, tackles the achievement gap head-on by educating and empowering the most important stakeholders in this problem – the youth.
This guide includes an exploration of the achievement gap, activities for team-building and fostering student understanding of the achievement gap, and resources to design a service-learning project to address an aspect of the achievement gap.
