Research Summary: Teaching and Classroom Strategies for Homeless and Highly Mobile Students

The National Center for Homeless Education provides an annual summary of research on an emerging topic related to educating homeless and highly mobile students. The 2012 research summary, regarding academic resilience in homeless students, prompted readers to ask for more effective strategies to assist students in the classroom. In response to these requests, this research summary examines peer-reviewed research conducted between 2002 and 2013, cross-referencing the topics of homeless and/or highly mobile student with teaching, learning, classroom, or school.
