Reaching the Classic Underachiever Through Personalized Learning
Stacey Lucas, English Teacher at Riverside Campus
As educators, we all know that kid - the classic underachiever; the kid who says he can get an A on a test without doing the homework and actually does it. The student who slides by with below average grades when we know he can do so much more. We've all been frustrated with this student. We've called him lazy and complained about him in the teacher's lounge. What we sometimes fail to understand is that school failed this student a long time ago.
