The reality for many families in poverty is an intergenerational pattern where unstable and stressful early childhood environments lead to poor academic readiness and behavioral issues; culminating in higher dropout rates, crime convictions and teen pregnancies. In fact, low-income students are 4.5 times more likely to drop out of high school. Yet, the situation is not hopeless.
During this 90-minute webinar, Bryan Harris, Ed.D. will explore impacts of poverty on students and reveal techniques and strategies educators can use to help these students overcome obstacles, gain confidence and succeed academically. Attendees will gain an understanding of how being from a low socio-economic stratum can affect the brain’s development and function. But, brains can and do change and Dr. Harris will reveal how educators can facilitate that change.
Discover why traditional methods of teaching may not work with this segment of students due to acute or chronic stress. And how cognitive skill development, as well as emotional support, can help these students succeed. Learn why it’s critical to give economically disadvantaged students increasing levels of control over their lives at school and to help them develop coping and resiliency skills. Explore techniques to improve vocabulary, working memory and reading skills. Attendees will come away with an understanding of how the lack of attunement in these students prevents them from learning appropriate emotional responses. You’ll leave this webinar with techniques to teach students how to respond appropriately in class.
