The author draws from decades of research to deconstruct popular myths, misconceptions, and educational practices that undercut the achievement of low-income students. Gorski carefully describes the challenges that students in poverty face and the resiliencies they and their families draw upon. Most importantly, this book provides specific, evidence-based strategies for teaching youth by creating equitable, bias-free learning environments. Written in an appealing conversational tone, this resource will help teachers and school leaders to better reach and teach students in poverty.

Book Features:

  • A conceptual framework for creating equitable educational opportunities for low- and middle-income youth.
  • Instructional strategies based on an analysis of more than 20 years of research on what works (and what doesn’t work).
  • A depiction of teachers, not as the problem when it comes to the achievement gap, but as champions of students.
  • Activities such as a Poverty and Class Awareness Quiz.
