At Promise Youth

Dr. Victor Rios: "Help for kids the education system ignores"

 

Define students by what they contribute, not what they lack -- especially those with difficult upbringings, says educator Victor Rios. Interweaved with his personal tale of perseverance as an inner-city youth, Rios identifies three straightforward strategies to shift attitudes in education and calls for fellow educators to see "at-risk" students as "at-promise" individuals brimming with resilience, character and grit.

 

At promise youth have: Grit, Character, and Resilience.  How can I use these characteristics in the classroom?

 

Three strategies:

1. Growth Mindset

2. Cultural Relevancy

3. Resources 

 

At Promise Youth: "From 'at-risk' to 'at-promise': supporting teens to overcome adversity"
