Now reduce and prevent underachievement
There will be many students failing to achieve what they plan for or what they expect to achieve – this is underachievement and can be reduced, prevented or even overcome. All schools experience underachievement.
A recently published book by Dr Leonard Restall identifies causes of underachievement that can be changed within the classroom and gives proven strategies to change the problem. It is based on his research and 40 years of teaching experience.
Details can be obtained from Dr Leonard Restall; email email@example.com
