Keeping Poverty in Mind: Creating Successful Experiences for Kids (HSP557)

Join us for an engaging, fast-moving, results-oriented workshop that's based on the work of Eric Jensen and many other 21st century researchers. This is differentiation at its best. You can learn to differentiate your teaching and counseling techniques and therapeutic environments in ways that successfully reach students of poverty. The bad news is that poverty can make devastating, chronic changes in the human brain. The good news is that there are powerful solutions that hundreds of schools have successfully implemented that clearly demonstrate students from poverty can achieve. First, you need genuine HOPE based on the science, not fantasy. This can only come from staff that truly understand and believe in the potential of students from poverty. This cutting edge staff development program provides tons of science-based hope that fuels enthusiasm and positive morale. Second, you need the facts. You'll get the real science behind the changes in brains of those from poverty. Learn what forces shape their brain and literally change it on a daily basis. Finally, you'll get brain-based strategies that not only change the brain, but just may change you!!
