Using mindsets in the classroom to overcome student poverty and adversity

  1. The devastating effects of poverty are accelerating.
  2. Poverty affects both you and your students in multiple adverse ways.
  3. You have the power to reverse the academic impact poverty has on your students—and this comprehensive resource will show you how.

In this revised and updated edition, two of Eric Jensen’s top-selling books—Poor Students, Rich Teaching and Poor Students, Richer Teaching—have been merged into one must-read resource.
