School dropouts cost our society hundreds of billions of dollars each year and lead to millions of young people not achieving their potential. Boys from poverty, especially from generational poverty, constitute a significant percentage of this population, often ending up in jail and/or perpetuating their poverty in future generations. From this course, participants learn how to address the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social needs of boys in poverty in their classrooms and schools to help buck these devastating trends. Presenters Jim Littlejohn and Ruby K. Payne, along with a team of workshop participants, scrutinize the effects of poverty on boys' development in each category, promoting strategies to motivate and engage these boys in their educations and keep them in school. Participants will become informed educators who can reverse these students' odds, one relationship and one instructional strategy at a time.
