Item imageRecognize Potential In K-3 Students Diverse Backgrounds

The purpose of U-STARS-PLUS is to help teachers recognize and nurture potential in children from economically disadvantaged and/or culturally/linguistically diverse families as well as children with disabilities. This webinar is intended for those who have purchased the U-STARS-PLUS materials or are considering their use. The U-STARS-PLUS philosophy to reframe the view of children from "at risk" to "at potential" is introduced, including the major components used to advance achievement in the education of young children (grades K-3). The U-STARS-PLUS components will be reviewed (TOPS, Teacher's Systematic Observations of Students) Folders, Science & Literature Connections, and Family Science Packets), looking at how these materials create high-end learning opportunities. Participants will also have a chance to explore how the U-STARS-PLUS approach fits with their efforts to support educational excellence for young learners.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Describe the philosophy and the five major components of U-STARS-PLUS.
  • Explain how the U-STARS-PLUS materials can be used to support classroom teachers in recognizing and nurturing potential in children from our most educationally vulnerable populations.
  • Determine how U-STARS-PLUS will fit with their current efforts to support educational excellence for young learners.

Presented by Mary Ruth Coleman, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
