Topic: Behavior & Climate
Sponsored by: ESC-CC
Presenter(s): Kathleen Budge, ASCD Author and National Consultant
Description: Drawing upon decades of research and myriad of authentic classroom experiences, Kathleen Budge, ASCD author and national consultant, dispels the harmful myths, explains the facts, and urges educators to act against the debilitating effects of poverty on their students.  She will share powerful voices of teachers—many of whom grew up in poverty—to amplify the five classroom practices that permeate the culture of successful high-poverty schools:

1. Caring relationships and advocacy

2. High expectations and support

3. Commitment to equity

4. Professional accountability for learning

5. The courage and will to act

Participants will explore classroom-tested strategies and practices, plus templates and exercises that can be used for personal reflection and ongoing collaboration with colleagues.  Disrupting Poverty: 5 Powerful Classroom Practices provides teachers, administrators, coaches, and others with background information and the practical tools needed to help students break free from the cycle of poverty.
