This session will focus on the risk factors associated with students of poverty and suggestions on ways to engage these students in learning and overcoming these adverse effects.


NAGC Standard 1: Learning and Development

To be effective in working with learners with gifts and talents, teachers and other educators in PreK-12 settings must understand the characteristics and needs of the population for whom they are planning curriculum, instruction, assessment, programs, and services.  Knowing the impact of poverty, these educators will make changes to the instruction based on researched practices.

Standard 4: Learning Environments

Educators will reflect on their district, school, or classroom environments in relation to students living in poverty.  They will set goals of ways to make changes to the environment to address the needs of these students.
