Changing Minds to Address Poverty in the Classroom
October 7 - November 27
Online interactive courses replace much of our traditionally offered face-to-face sessions offered in previous years. For the convenience of our participants, these courses are now available on the Statewide Field Team’s Online Learning Platform. Each course is offered for a number of weeks and participants are able to self-pace their learning throughout the course while also interacting with other participants and our Statewide Field Team’s Coordinator of Professional Learning chosen to facilitate learning for this content area. This format gives participants the flexibility needed to engage at their convenience, but also provides support and interaction with other learners and an instructor. Materials presented in these courses are available to participants on the Statewide Field Team’s Online Learning Platform.
This is a self-paced interactive online course that runs from 10/7/19 to 11/27/19.
Changing Minds to Address Poverty in the Classroom is based on the work of Eric Jensen, this course provides background on the effect living in poverty has on students’ brains and their learning in the classroom. The course moves beyond the theory and provides practical classroom strategies that enrich the learning environment and increase the likelihood of success for students living in poverty. Participants will explore seven essential mindsets shown to positively impact student learning. This course provides strategies and tools to make changes in your classroom so students living in poverty have a greater chance of learning what they need to succeed in your classroom and in life.
