Children need help

Clip to ScrapBook #15

Kids from homes where parents can't get it together are in a very tough situation. We have a number of kids in our school who live in cramped quarters, noisy homes with lots of siblings or a couple of families living together. Students do a fair number of projects, but they are allowed to do them in school. A 5th grader, 10-11 years old, might have some trouble negotiating all the negatives encountered in a dysfunctional home, but you know your students best and what they can or can't manage.

I try to give reading assignments that help prepare the student for the project. I also take note of which parents don't show up at conference time.
