Schooling for Resilience

Improving the Life Trajectory of Black and Latino Boys
Edward Fergus, Pedro Noguera, and Margary Martin

As a group, Black and Latino boys face persistent and devastating disparities in achievement when compared to their White counterparts: they are more likely to obtain low test scores and grades, be categorized as learning disabled, be absent from honors and gifted programs, and be overrepresented among students who are suspended and expelled from school. They are also less likely to enroll in college and more likely to drop out. Put simply, they are among the most vulnerable populations in our schools.

Schooling for Resilience investigates how seven newly formed schools, created specifically to serve boys of color, set out to address the broad array of academic and social problems faced by Black and Latino boys.

Self-Regulation in Learning

The Role of Language and Formative Assessment
Alison L. Bailey and Margaret Heritage

In their new book, Alison L. Bailey and Margaret Heritage illustrate how to help students become more self-regulated learners—that is, to be able to monitor and take charge of their own learning when working independently and in groups. Language provides the foundation for the development of self-regulatory skills, enabling students to express themselves and negotiate interactions with others; the demands of these self-regulatory processes in turn can support the development of rich vocabulary and social language skills. The authors also emphasize the role of formative assessment as a means of supporting students in engaging in language-rich, self-regulated learning.
