Succeeding with Students of Poverty:

Moving Beyond Assumptions and Toward Achievement

Written by Carole J. Snider, M.Ed.



Many schools and educators are challenged to meet the accountability

demands of state and federal measures with their students of poverty. This graduate course is designed to provide the tools that will equalize opportunities for these students in order to maximize their academic achievement. These children can learn, and are just as capable as their peers, but life so far has not provided them with the necessary advantages for high academic achievement. This course will focus on what educators can actually do to overcome these significant demographic challenges. Succeeding with Students of Poverty is based upon the latest research.


Here is some of what you will learn:

-The complexity of poverty and its effects upon children

-Identifying and addressing the six types of ADD

-Incorporating movement into any subject or grade level to enhance learning

-Creating learning environments specifically designed for school success

-Identifying and capitalizing on school success factors

-Learning how to make homework truly work

-Recognizing symptoms of and implementing coping strategies for "Learned Helplessness"

-The lifelong positive impact of the persevering growth mindset

-Specific instructional strategies to increase the academic success of any student
