Course DescriptionCombining two excellect texts, "Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind" and "Intelligence and How to Get it", this course follows up on the best-selling text, "Teaching with Poverty in Mind". For educators who wanted to know more about how to help in schools struggling with class and racial gaps to promote academic achievement, this course offers purposeful and engaging strategies that educators can use to expand students' cognitive capacity, increase motivation and effort, and build a deep, enduring understanding of content. Teachers can use instructional time more effectively and empower students to take ownership of their learning, with steps to create an exciting yet realistic implementation plan. Contrary to the belief that intelligence is predetermined, and impervious to culture, intelligence is principally determined by societal influences, and can be changed.
