With an estimated 16 million plus children living in poverty, it is perhaps inevitable that poverty impacts nearly every single community and school in the U.S. and worldwide. As educators, most of us have seen firsthand the effects of poverty in our schools and classrooms, but there are things we can do to help lessen or deal with those effects. Join Matt Bergman as he shares how you can use a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to address many of the challenges teachers face when working with students living in poverty.

I really like the idea of the Thankful Tree. I think I will use that in my classroom. I agree with the statement that lids will not listen and learn from you until they know that you care. Also the numbers of children living in poverty is shocking. As teachers we need to be reminded of that each and everyday.
