Using mindsets in the classroom to overcome student poverty and adversity

There are three critical characteristics to know about poverty and education:

  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 on poverty and education. Dr. Eric Jensen clearly defines seven mindsets essential for reaching economically disadvantaged students and shares corresponding strategies for overcoming adversity and ensuring college and career readiness for all learners, regardless of socioeconomic status.

Motivate students to learn in the face of poverty using mindsets in the classroom:

  • Understand the urgency of poverty in the United States and how poverty affects education, student engagement, and academic achievement.
  • Learn how creating a positive school culture and a growth mindset for students can be beneficial in overcoming adversity.
  • Gain seven high-impact mindsets that bring change: the relational mindset, achievement mindset, rich classroom climate mindset, engagement mindset, positivity mindset, enrichment mindset, and graduation mindset.
  • Build effective teacher–student relationships, and help students see college and career readiness as a reachable target.
  • Create a welcoming classroom climate where all students love to learn, and drive student engagement, motivation, and success.
