"Closing the Learning Gap Between Black Children and Other Groups"
Dr. Frank Roberson
Cosolidated School District of Aiken County
This seminar will be lead by Dr. Frank G. Roberson, author, educator, and practitioner in raising the achievement of underperforming students.
The session is designed to present
participants with an Action Plan to
promote the engagement of students (kindergarten through college)
in the classroom. The greatest hindrance to closing the achievement gap between
black children and other ethnic groups is the lack of consistent effort
on the part of the student. The seminar will provide participants with the
tools to identify the condition and situation that interferes with engagement
(be it a learning deficiency, apathy or lack of interest, or a disconnection
with school and the reason for the disconnection).
There are many ongoing initiatives to address the achievement gap. But this initiative has a different focus and a different set of actions that can influence students to become seriously engaged in the learning environment.
