Much of the research pertaining to disadvantaged youth and academic achievement or student retention addresses curriculum, cultural diversity, equity in education, instructional strategies and teacher expectations. This book offers an innovative viewpoint focusing on how a teacher's words, attitude, and behavior can impact and impede a student to the point where he or she creates self-imposed limitations and disconnects from learning, the class, and/or school. Teachers can significantly influence student behavior and academic performance through their own language, attitudes, and behaviors. Teachers impart suggestions to students' subconscious minds several times a day, on a daily basis through praise, compliments, reprimands, comments, facial expressions, and body language. This book presents the pedagogic audience with examples and can serve as a guide for study, reflection, and discourse concerning the long and short term effect of teachers' words, attitudes, and behaviors. It also introduces practical procedures that can be used that may be effective in dismantling barriers to learning and strategies for reprogramming students for success.
