Research demonstrates that children of poverty need more than just academic instruction to succeed. Discover a school-improvement blueprint for teaching resilience and turning low-performing schools into cultures of hope. The authors draw from their own experiences working with high-poverty, high-achieving schools to illustrate how to support students with an approach that considers social as well as emotional factors in education.

Understand how poverty affects education and how creating a positive school culture can help:

  • Understand the relevance of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and positive psychology in K-12 education.
  • Discover tested strategies behind the success of high-poverty, high-achieving schools in closing the achievement gap.
  • Learn how to create intrinsic motivation for students impacted by adverse childhood experiences (ACE) and support them in overcoming learned helplessness.
  • Access surveys that gauge the temperature of your school's culture.
  • Integrate the world of jobs and professional careers into academic curriculum.
  • Support students with tools to envision and plan for the future.
  • Define processes for building consensus and increasing collaboration among teachers and school leadership.
