Teaching and Engaging
with Poverty in Mind 

Eric Jensen

Are students of poverty really different? The research says, "Yes!" But, HOW are they different and what can you do about it? This powerful workshop explores both the science and the specific classroom strategies to ready students of poverty. It's based on Eric Jensen's book Teaching with Poverty in Mind

You will hear school success stories, learn the inside secrets and get specific school-tested ideas. You can turn your students into top achievers IF you know how and have the WILL to do it. You can succeed with all of them, and you'll learn exactly how to do it. Action plans will be designed with practical strategies.

Elementary and secondary school teams (school administrators, counselors, teachers, specialists, and special education teachers) and district office administrators leading action plans.
