Poor Students Richer Teaching: Mindsets that Raise Student Achievement offers effective, research-based instructional strategies to ensure all students, regardless of circumstance, graduate from high school as college or career ready. The course examines the power of mindset as an instrument for change, detailing the necessary but difficult work to positively impact students from poverty. Three powerful mindsets to raise student achievement are presented: 1) the positivity mindset; 2) the enrichment mindset, and 3) the graduation mindset. K-12 educators will understand the implications of poverty in education, use the three mindsets to strengthen students’ attitudes on academic optimism, build students’ cognitive capacity, equip students with skills to be college or career ready, and will design effective lessons using strategic lesson-planning tools.
