15862 K-12: Understanding Poverty and Building Cultures of Care in our Classroom - Cullowhee

Understanding that poverty does not define a student is critical when establishing classroom culture and we know now more than ever the importance of caring for our students’ social-emotional health. Based on the work of Gorski (2017), this session will build awareness about the research of families experiencing poverty and demystify poverty as a deficient culture. Additionally, using the work of Hemphill (2020) and Sprenger (2020), we will explore strategies that promote the social-emotional health of students and build cultures of care in our classrooms. Throughout the day, participants will have opportunities to collaborate about this critical topic with colleagues from across NC. This session is intended for any K-12 teacher, instructional coach, or school leader.
