Teaching with Poverty in Mind by Eric Jensen £19.99

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 behaviour and performance. Learn how the effects of poverty can be reversed by employing the practices of turnaround schools and schools that have a history of high performance among students raised in poverty. Jensen explains what educators can do to improve the achievement of economically disadvantaged students: How to recognise the signs of chronic stress caused by poverty; Why to assess 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 poverty-based stress; Ways to empower students and increase their perception of control; Which schoolwide factors lead to success and which do not; How enriching learning environments can change students' brains and improve their lives.
