The goal of this course it to provide participants with the necessary skill set to identify, assess, and meet the needs of students at promise. The first half of the course focuses on exploring the personal, cultural, and institutional norms and biases associated with the traditional “at-risk” label, establishing a fairer characterization of students at-promise, identifying the causes and manifestations of the risks students face, and empathizing with the personal, cultural, academic, and behavioral needs of at-promise students. In the second half of the course, participants will explore a variety of classroom-, district-, and community-based strategies and programs for students at-promise. Throughout the course, participants will also be asked to reflect on their prior experience with at-promise students, as well as how their own culture, experience, and biases affect their ability to effectively engage students at-promise and apply the concepts and skills they learn to improve current practices.

The student plan will demonstrate the participant’s knowledge of the various strategies explored throughout the course and incorporate their understanding of the personal, cultural, and academic experiences of their students in order to effectively address the needs of those at-promise.
