Impact of Poverty
Participants will increase their knowledge and skills in understanding the impact of poverty on student performance and specific strategies that support at-risk student classroom success. During the course students will become aware of poverty indicators in their state, community and school district; specific effects of poverty on student emotional, social, physical and academic development; success stories of communities and schools who have implemented programs that have had great success; components in schools and classrooms that support at-risk students success. Students will learn specific strategies that have been proven successful in at-risk schools that support high expectations, effective lesson delivery, increased student engagement, strong classroom climate and strategies that build character and trust.
