This webinar contains crucial insights into the lives of our students living in poverty. I highly recommend taking 30 minutes to listen to the information presented here, as well as, read the books the speaker refers to (Teaching with Poverty in Mind and Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind).

We must show our students that WE CARE about them! Such an informative presentation for all kinds of learners. I appreciated the special attention to poverty stricken familes and the fact that we have an impact in their lives and a job to help them grow.
