Dr. Van Antwerp, along with Senta Greene, two leading experts in educational and social justice reform using the science of child and adolescent development, is excited to share and explore with you the second edition of the book. The book features timeless, cutting-edge thinking that further captures the heart and embeds practical and powerful strategies for first reaching, then teaching the "at-risk" child.
