Abstract

The Successful Educational Actions (SEAs) have demonstrated their ability to achieve excellent results with respect to academic success and increased social cohesion in different schools with diverse student bodies and families. Of these actions, we highlight interactive groups (heterogeneous groups of pupils with one adult volunteer per group who promotes peer interaction ), dialogic reading (a new understanding of the reading event that involves reading with more individuals, in more spaces and times) and extended learning time (after school programs such as homework clubs or tutored libraries ). In addition to describing these actions and the reorganization of human resources they entail, this chapter will provide concrete data on pupils’ results following the implementation of the aforementioned SEAs.
