BUILDING A CULTURE OF HOPE
Building on research that shows children living in poverty require not just academic instruction but an atmosphere of hope to succeed, this book offers a blueprint for turning our schools into Cultures of Hope. Authors Robert D. Barr and Emily L. Gibson use their work with high-poverty, high-performing schools across the United States to illustrate how the failure of our schools, evidenced in alarmingly high dropout rates and high levels of despair among teachers as well as students, can be reversed by an approach that pays close attention to social and emotional factors in education.
Building a Culture of Hope is divided into three parts. Part One, "An Apartheid of Ignorance," defines the core problems of an educational system in which children of poverty fare much worse than economically advantaged children. The section ends by identifying a unique group of schools that are high-poverty but also high achieving. Part Two, "The Four Seeds of Hope," explores the essential qualities of these Cultures of Hope: (1) a sense of optimism, (2) a sense of belonging, (3) a sense of pride, self-esteem, and self-confidence, and (4) a sense of purpose. Part Three describes how to implement a Culture of Hope and provides a detailed road map from kindergarten through post-secondary school and beyond. Drawing on their wide-ranging experience, along with research, the authors include entries from their own journals, with accounts of time spent in some of the poorest school districts in the United States.
Building a Culture of Hope also includes appendices with supplemental resources for educators and free, downloadable reproducibles (available at go.solution-tree.com/schoolimprovement).
