Poverty impacts so many of our students and affects every area of their lives: social, emotional, academic. Based largely on Eric Jensen’s Poor Students, Rich Teaching, this workshop will help educators K-12 better understand what is happening with some of their most challenging students. It will also provide tools for how to regulate emotions and behavior, engage the most difficult students, and enhance cognition through long-term memory.


Learning Intentions for the day:

  • Better understanding of how poverty affects students neurologically, physically, behaviorally, and cognitively
  • Methods to help teachers remain calm and positive when faced with student challenges
  • Procedures to facilitate healing and resilience in students from trauma and poverty
  • Strategies to improve student performance, understanding, and achievement
  • Exploration of mindsets that support positive healing and growth
Target Audience:

Intended Audience: Classroom teachers, instructional coaches, special education teachers
