Great reminders of the effects of poverty and the need to look at the factors behind student behavior before we make snap judgments and then look at how we can best help them learn.
Thank you. I learned a lot from your presentation. The tips were particularly helpful. I never realized that vocabulary played such an important part in poverty.
