Schools and districts are seeing unprecedented numbers of students and families living without residential stability. Although the McKinney-Vento Act has been around for over two decades, many district- and site-level practitioners have a difficult time interpreting and implementing the Act's mandates within their local contexts. This book provides much-needed guidance to help educational leaders support students who are homeless and highly mobile students who face significant barriers related to access and academic success. The authors employ several different strategies to help translate complex state and federal policies into effective practices. They include policy analysis, examples of successful approaches, tools for training staff, youth experiences, and address the role of school districts in serving marginalized students. Serving Students Who Are Homeless can be used as a professional development tool at the local and district level, and as a textbook in higher education settings that prepare entry-level and advanced-credential administrators, counselors, school psychologists, and curriculum leaders.

The information and strategies identified within the pages of this book will prove to be an invaluable resource to the work of counselors, school personnel, teachers, administrators, and advocates for homeless students.” —Melissa Schoonmaker, Los Angeles County Office of Education “Homelessness brings an array of daunting challenges to students, families, and schools.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

Teach the next generation that it is possible to change the world with the inspiring curriculum guide, It's My Business: Inspiring Students' Ideas for a Better Community. Author Roxie Hentz, PhD, applies over twenty-five years of experience to create a fully developed curriculum resource aligned to academic standards with detailed lessons, interactive activities, and group projects that will equip educators and youth leaders with the tools they need to introduce the concept of social entrepreneurship. Many students already engage in social entrepreneurial activities - whether it's using their money to aid animals at the local shelter, buying food for a neighboring soup kitchen that serves the homeless, or something else close to their hearts. By more formally exposing them to this innovative field, students will learn how to take social issues they're passionate about and turn them into real businesses that help their communities in meaningful ways. At the same time, they also strengthen critical thinking, build leadership skills, develop a sense of self-responsibility, improve confidence, and promote problem-solving techniques-all skills that can transfer to success both in school and beyond. The lessons and activities ultimately build toward a project in which students get to develop and manage their own classroom social enterprise. This process of learning through real-life experiences challenges them to view business as a way of improving or changing their community-and even the world around them.
