Disrupting Poverty in the Elementary School (DVD)
What can you do to disrupt poverty in your school and turn it into a high-achieving school?
We’ll show you how in the new ASCD video program, Disrupting Poverty in the Elementary School. Featuring William H. Parrett and Kathleen M. Budge, experts on school improvement and co-authors of the book, Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools, this DVD looks at elementary schools that are not only meeting the needs of impoverished students but pushing them to high achievement.
Drawing upon their years studying high-poverty, high-performing schools, Parrett and Budge identify the common practices and structures that effective schools put into action as well as the unproductive processes these schools eliminate.
In Disrupting Poverty in the Elementary School, we visit schools in Modesto, California, and Grand Rapids, Michigan, where district leaders, school leaders and teachers are making great strides by improving practices and eliminating what’s not working in the key areas of building leadership capacity; fostering a healthy, safe and supportive learning environment; and focusing on student, professional and system learning for the elementary school setting.
Learn what these schools do to help students succeed and how you and your school can adopt the same practices to disrupt the cycle of poverty and lift students to achievement.
