A Presentation on a Growing Concern
Featuring: Beth Templeton
Executive Director, Our Eyes Were Opened
Our neighbors who live in poverty consider life in different ways than those who have adequate basic resources. Many educators tend to see the world through their middle-class worldview. Because of this, they do not understand these significant and often rational differences. They may misinterpret behavior they see and ascribe negative connotations to how their students are reacting. Their assumption can affect the quality of both the teaching and the learning that happens. Most teachers have real passion for educating their students, but their experiences limit how they relate to the challenges some of their students face daily.
Join us for an in depth look at poverty in the classroom, led by Beth Templeton. Beth's experience in this subject ranges over 30 years. She's led workshops, hosted seminars, written books and developed programming to address the needs of the most critical of situations that our neighbors face. The morning will begin with a presentation from Beth, followed by a facilitated discussion.
