Using our Brain to Understand Theirs: The Intersect between Economic Poverty and Teaching Strategies

We have known in our heart and now know in our head that academically at-risk children must have intentional intervention in our school settings if they are to increase academic achievement: Children of color, children who do not own English as their dominant language, children with identified disability, and, of course, children of poverty. A national presenter and herself a child of generational poverty, Dr. Cathy Hamilton explores the intersection between the economically poor and our teaching strategies, dispersing practical approaches in her presentation.
