Course Description

How does poverty impact learning, work habits, and decision making? People in poverty face challenges from both obvious and hidden sources. The reality of being poor brings out a survival mentality, and turns attention away from opportunities taken for granted by everyone else.

If you work with people in poverty, some understanding of how different their world is from yours will be invaluable. The book used for this course gives participants a practical, real-world support and guidance to improve effectiveness in working with people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. 

  • What are the "hidden rules" of poverty, middle class, and wealth?
  • 12 key points to remember about poverty.
  • What percentage of U.S. children live in poverty?
  • Poverty-related behaviors and their interventions.
  • Symptoms of generational poverty and how the reveal themselves. 

Come learn strategies to better interact and communicate with students and parents.
