How can I address the effects of poverty in my school and in my community?
This DVD series, based on the best-selling book by Eric Jensen, brings to life the concepts and strategies that have worked in schools with a history of high performance among students raised in poverty.
Use the video and embedded workshop materials to introduce your learning community to how to turn around the effects of poverty on behavior and academic performance.
Classroom scenes show how teachers model emotional responses for their students, reduce the effects of chronic stress, and provide students with life skills training. Explore schoolwide success factors that support the whole child and foster a school culture that refuses to let students fail. And see examples of how your school can do more to help underserved students by fostering intellectual curiosity, strengthening academic performance through arts and athletics, and changing community assumptions about academics.
Program One (available separately) takes you into elementary classrooms where teachers attend to the social, emotional, and academic needs of their students.
Program Two (available separately) explores school and classroom success factors that support the academic achievement and life readiness of older students.
