Excessive stress: 6 strategies for helping struggling learners
from By: Howard Margolis
From Feb. 4:
Struggling learners, including many children with dyslexia, cognitive impairment or behavioral disorders, become excessively stressed when they believe they have no control over a situation, believe they can't succeed, and believe their inevitable failure will harm them immeasurably. If schools allow teachers to continuously adapt instruction to struggling learners' needs and abilities, teachers can help such learners develop a realistic sense of control and a belief that they can succeed.
