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 would love a webinar on engaging parents who might be reluctant to ask for help for their students!
Great information and the statistical data used was very shocking.

Nice Job
Very helpful webinar on students living in poverty. How as educators we can help our students reach their full potential. Students will do their best when they fee that their teacher cares about them , it makes a big difference. Thank you Matt for your dedication.

Thank you for the information and ideas. One thing that stuck with me was the quote, "The achievement gap is largely a vocabulary gap." We have to give our students multiple means to express themselves and assist them in increasing their vocabulary to do so. Thanks again.
