 Looking for some help with your students affected by poverty?  I recommend Jensen's book published by ASCD.  You may find it online at ASCD.org.  A great resource!

TEACHING WITH POVERTY IN MIND: WHAT BEING POOR DOES TO KIDS' BRAINS AND WHAT SCHOOLS CAN DO ABOUT IT 

ERIC P. JENSEN


Teaching with Poverty in Mind: What Being Poor Does to Kids' Brains and What Schools Can Do About It





 

DESCRIPTION

Although every educator knows firsthand about the effects that poverty can have on students, here at last is a book that makes it crystal clear why and how the effects of poverty have to be addressed in classroom teaching and school and district policy. Veteran educator and brain expert Eric Jensen helps you understand what poverty does to children’s brains and why students raised in poverty are especially subject to stressors that undermine school behavior and performance. Then learn how the effects of poverty can be reversed when educators employ the practices of turn-around schools and schools that have a history of high performance among students raised in poverty. Drawing from research, experience, and real school success stories, Jensen explains what educators everywhere can do to improve the achievement of economically disadvantaged students:
  • How to recognize the signs of chronic stress caused by poverty.
  • Why to assess low performing students for core skills that are affected by poverty, such as attention, focus, and problem solving.
  • How to change school and classroom environments to alleviate the stress caused by chronic poverty.
  • Ways to empower students and increase their perception of control over their environments.
  • Which schoolwide factors lead to success and which are always achievement killers.
  • How enriching learning environments that include the arts and highly engaging instruction
