A Framework for Understanding Poverty – Actions for Educators

Ever have students and their families who…                                                                                                                                                        

Can’t afford a uniform, but wear designer gear every day?
Threaten, ‘My parents say I don’t have to do what you say!’
Seem to make a game out of being in trouble?
Rarely pay excursion fees but often have $5 spare for lunch?
Have cable TV and video games but no money for pencils?
Don’t seem to care about school, work or their future?
Laugh when in trouble or when being disciplined???

This workshop has been developed specifically for the education sector, and will give you the tools to address these challenges and take a lot of the stress out of managing your classroom.  Catering to the needs of teachers, ancillary and office staff as well as allied professionals in schools, ‘Frameworks’ can make dealing with children and their families much easier, in and out of the school setting.  It can optimise behavioural, social and academic outcomes, making life better for everyone!

Offering ideas and insights alongside practical, concrete strategies, this workshop makes it clear that, despite the obstacles poverty can create in all types of interactions, there are specific processes and tools for overcoming these challenges that make a very real and significant difference in behavioural, social and academic outcomes for students and in optimising staff efficacy and wellbeing. 

An in depth presentation includes:

  • The hidden rules within economic classes –  generational poverty, middle class and wealth.
  • Characteristics of generational poverty, and why these students often fear being educated.
  • The role of language registers, discourse patterns and story structure.
  • How economic class affects behaviours and mindsets
  • The eight resources that make a difference in success.
  • Discipline interventions that improve behaviour.
  • Building relationships.
