Publisher's Summary

Our increasingly fast-paced world is interfering with sound educational practices and harming kids both physically and mentally. Overloaded and Underprepared: Strategies for Stronger Schools and Healthy, Successful Kids gives teachers, administrators, and parents the information, tools, and strategies needed to begin making immediate changes at school, in the community, and at home to benefit all students. Based on the Challenge Success program - a research-based project founded at Stanford University's Graduate School of Education - this vital resource shows how to create a more balanced and academically fulfilling life for kids.  

Step by step, Denise Pope, Maureen Brown, and Sarah Miles outline a concrete framework to reduce student stress while engaging kids in real learning. Overloaded and Underprepared details strategies and techniques that have been proven to work with tens of thousands of students, like hands-on learning and alternative assessments, as well as educating kids and parents about healthier ways to handle stress. The book helps to identify areas for improvement at school, brainstorm possible solutions, identify potential obstacles, and offer ways to achieve buy-in from multiple stakeholders.
