Is Your Socioeconomic Status Similar To Or Different From The Students In What W

  • Is your socioeconomic status similar to or different from the students’?
  • In what ways is it similar or different?
  • How do differences between your SES background and your students’ SES background hinder your teaching?
  • How do you ensure that your perceptions and assumptions do not impede student learning?
  • Does the difference affect the way you teach your students? If so, how?
  • If someone were to visit your classroom or neighborhood school without knowing anything about the school, would the visitor be able to easily identify your students’ SES? Yours?
  • Take a “Learning Walk” in your school from the perspective of a student’s parent prior to responding to the following:
  • How does your school setting, the interactions between and among staff members and students, the classroom, and teaching materials reflect the backgrounds of your students and honor their real-life experiences?
  • Based on the information in the chapter you selected from the text (Blankstein, Noguera, & Kelly, 2016), Overcoming the Silence of Generational Poverty (Beegle, 2003), and 474: Back to School (This American Life, 2012), compare and contrast the contribution of these resources to your understanding of poverty by answering the following:
  • Does the discussion of non-cognitive skills change your perception of children who come from backgrounds of poverty?
  • How could you include non-cognitive skills in your daily classroom teaching and lessons?
