Communicating Effectively Across Poverty Barriers



This workgroup has been established to support participants in the TeachingPartner Live Workshop, Communicating Effectively Across Poverty Barriers.

In this Workshop, I explore the impact that communication styles can have on students’ life experiences, and I provide a framework for improving communication and relationship skills between teachers and students.

You will learn about the differences in communication across social class and develop concrete tools for building stronger relationships and communicating more effectively with students and families who live in the crisis of poverty. You will also identify your own dominant styles for communicating in the classroom.
