This research-based teacher resource details the difficult but necessary work that K-12 teachers must undertake to positively impact the college and career readiness of students living in poverty. A companion to Poor Students, Rich Teaching, this book outlines three new mindsets that enhance teaching and strengthen students' learning: the positivity mindset, enrichment mindset, and graduation mindset. Author Eric Jensen includes implementation strategies and lesson-planning tools designed to increase student engagement and success.

This book will help you use mindsets in the classroom to motivate students to learn:

  • Understand the urgency of student poverty in the United States and how poverty affects classroom engagement, student success, and high school graduation rates.
  • Learn how to engage students in the three mindsets to strengthen an attitude of academic optimism, hope, and resilience.
  • Positively influence students' social emotional learning to impact achievement and increase college and career readiness skills.
  • Build students' cognitive load capacity and social skills to support learning in spite of the challenges they face.
  • Communicate the importance of learner autonomy and choice in motivation for students.
