Richland's A Framework for Understanding Poverty
professional development series is underway again, with this year's sessions
highlighting ways in which concepts from Ruby Payne's book have impacted the Richland campus.
The library wants to support this endeavor by helping faculty, staff, and administrators find the articles featured in Payne's companion book Research-Based Strategies: Narrowing the Achievement Gap for Under-Resourced Students.
Research-Based Strategies was introduced during the second year of the professional development program; it offers a grid-like bibliography of 57 strategies to help struggling students with issues from having limited reading skills to not meeting deadlines to struggling with math.
Many of the bibliography's articles and titles are readily available via the open Internet (no log on) or via one of our subscription library databases (require log on). Articles that you can easily access have linked titles, while material that is harder to get is followed by links to alternate access. Some may be available via interlibrary loan, while some may be available for purchase. If you have any questions about accessing material, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bibliography is a long one, so it is being posted in sections.
