Disrupting Poverty: Creating a Poverty Literate Culture for Student Success
Any educator working for more than a few years has witnessed the growing number of students who live in poverty, and knows their job has become more challenging as a result. Much can be learned from educators—some of whom themselves grew up in poverty—who have helped students succeed despite the odds.
Based on recent research focused on these successes, William Parrett and Kathleen Budge, authors of the award-winning ASCD book, Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools, will share a framework for collaborative action in classrooms and schools. Practical strategies and specific examples will "jumpstart" your thinking about what it takes to disrupt poverty's adverse effects on learning to help your students succeed.
