Learn how you can succeed with the students who need you most in ways you never thought possible.

In this thought-provoking book, renowned educator and learning expert Eric Jensen takes his most personal, profound look yet at how poverty and inequity hurt students and their chances for success in life--and how teachers across all grade levels and subject areas can infuse equity into every aspect of their practice.

Drawing from a broad survey of research, personal and professional experience, and inspiring real-life success stories, Teaching with Poverty and Equity in Mind explains how teachers can

* Build relationships with students and create a classwide "in-group" where all learners feel a sense of safety and belonging.
* Incorporate relevance and cultural responsiveness into curriculum and instruction, increasing student buy-in and replacing compliance with collaboration and leadership.
* Use the uplifting power of stories to optimize energy and engagement and foster growth mindsets.
* Provide clear, actionable feedback that empowers students to evaluate and direct their own learning.
* Shift from disciplining students to coaching them with empathy, de-escalating disruptions and fostering more productive behaviors.
* Build stronger brains and cultivate capacity through powerful accelerated learning tools.
* Take steps to become a reflective and equitable educator, examining and debunking harmful biases and establishing personal and professional habits for a lifetime of growth.

This insightful, comprehensive guide also includes reflection prompts and downloadable tools and templates to help you move forward with implementation.

If we truly believe all students deserve a high-quality education, we need to commit to equity. It starts with each one of us. It starts with you.
