Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism, and Social Marginalization
Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism, and Social Marginalization
By Cia Verschelden
Foreword by Lynn Pasquerella, President of AAC&U
This new book, published by Stylus Publishing in partnership with AAC&U, “argues that the cognitive resources for learning of over half our young people have been diminished by the negative effects of economic insecurity, discrimination, and hostility against non-majority groups based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity, and other aspects of difference. Recognizing that these students are no different than their peers in terms of cognitive capacity, this book offers a set of strategies and interventions to rebuild the available cognitive resources necessary to succeed in college and reach their full potential.”
