Michigan ASCD is proud to collaborate with Michigan Virtual and Eric Jensen to bring you several self-guided online courses on Teaching with Poverty in Mind: What Being Poor Does to Kids’ Brains and What Schools Can Do About It.
This online experience is part of a state-wide conversation about the impact of poverty on our students and the strategies needed to address students of poverty. Educators who are engaging with these Deeper Dialogue experiences will have the opportunity to expand on the knowledge gained from reading Teaching with Poverty in Mind. The goal of each chapter dialogue is to connect the content of the book with real, transferrable action within each district, school and classroom.
Eric Jensen is a former teacher with a real love of learning. He has taught at all levels, from elementary school through university, and he is currently completing his Ph.D. in human development. In 1981, Jensen co-founded the United States’ first and largest brain-compatible learning program, now with more than 50,000 graduates. He has since written Teaching with the Brain in Mind, Brain-Based Learning, Enriching the Brain, and 25 other books on learning and the brain. A leader in the brain-based movement, he has made more than 65 visits to neuroscience labs and interacts with dozens of neuro-scientists annually.
