Introduction The book I will be reviewing is Teaching with Poverty in Mind written by Eric Jensen. The book was originally published in 1950 while our copy was printed in 2009 through the ASCD publication company. This book is used in our EDUC 200 Developmental Sciences and the Context of Poverty class to give us insight to challenges that could be present with poverty and schools. Jensen’s book illustrates the story of Mr. Hawkins a teacher’s experiences and growth working with children living in poverty. Along with Mr. Hawkins story Jensen gives logical facts and information about the affect poverty has on children along with his solutions.
Licensed by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, CSUF is fourth in the country for the quantity of four year certifications recompensed to minority understudies and first in California for the quantity of four year certifications granted to Hispanics. In 1957, Cal State Fullerton turned into the twelfth state school in California to be approved by the Legislature as a degree-allowing organization. The next year, a site was assigned for the grounds to be built up in upper east Fullerton. The property was obtained in 1959. This is that year that Dr. William B. Langsforf was designated as the establishing president of the school.
Introduction Standardized testing is a way for local, state school boards, and the US Department of Education to assess how well the students in that state have “learned” the material they were taught that year. These assessments are generally given in April in the state of Georgia. The current system of testing students in the state of Georgia is called the Georgia Milestones Assessment System. According the Georgia Department of Education, “The Geogria Milestones is a comprehensive summative assessment program spanning grades 3 through high school (GADOE).” The statistics that are collected from these assessments are used by both state and national governments when deciding on school funding. Some school systems also use individual teacher
Head Start and Early Head Start are federal programs that promote “school readiness of children from birth to age five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development.” The Head Start program was developed in the 1960s by President Lyndon B. Johnson as an outgrowth of the Economic Opportunity Act, and Early Head Start was started in 1994 to address the needs of low-income children under the age of three. Under Head Start and Early Head Start, children from financially challenged families are provided with opportunities and experiences normally only enjoyed by their wealthier counterparts. In 2006, the federal government put $6.8 billion into the program and distributed grants to nearly 1,400 community
By incorporating the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, faculty can layer this assessment with Socialization and Jablin’s Model of Organizational Assimilation (1987, 2001) to help develop and increase student retention/involvement in the classroom. By analyzing students sense-making (Weick, 1995), faculty can have a greater appreciation of what their students are thinking when they first begin class. Faculty will also have a better opportunity of addressing student concerns such as cultural accountability and meeting their educational needs in a communication style that is effective and understandable to each
Progressive School serves students from grades K through 8th. Progressive has 135 students enrolled. Progressive is a school that is mainly chartered by the New York Board of Regents.

Children attended segregated schools. The Freedom Summer campaign pointed out issues related to of racial segregation. It rectified this by establishing Freedom schools. “They assigned eight hundred volunteers from around the nation, mainly white college students to [...] improve education for rural black youngsters [...].” Ingeniously, volunteers were trained to protect themselves if they had problems while doing their job. “COFO ran workshops [...] and taught the volunteers [...].” The schools, in a way, showed, how racial inequality still existed, considering that “desegregation is difficult.” They taught from normal academic courses to those within African American history.
Curriculum models provide a structure for teachers to “systematically and transparently map out the rationale for the use of particular teaching, learning and assessment approaches” in the classroom, and are regarded as an effective and essential framework for successful teachers (O’Neill 2015, p27). Feeding into a particular curricular stance, it is essential to recognise the multiplicity of sources which will govern this individual framework. Oronstein and Hunkins observe that, when designing a curricular stance, educators must first consider the “philosophical and learning theories” which will inform their “design decisions” (2009, p182). This approach is essential to ensure that the curricular approaches one selects are “consonant with
Evolving methodologies for curriculum and instruction are essential to improving how we educate. McMillian positions that essential to this is understanding the value of scientific inquiry. He explains, “the principles of scientific inquiry provide the foundation for conducting studies…analyzing educational problems, making decisions, and designing, conducting, reporting, and evaluating” (McMillian, 2016, p. 7) to provide significant benefits for engaging students and affecting achievement. Among the changing methodologies is the consensus that the use of STEM-education concepts are necessary to prepare students for 21st century skill-building. Subsequently, this has led to an instructional methodology that highlights math-centered curriculum, and the instruction of science and technology as independent of core content.
They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.

The school operates as a school-within-a-school (SWAS). Though the STEM Academy is a separate and autonomous program, it is housed on two campuses. The middle school (grades 6-7) is housed at Nimitz Middle School and the high school (grades 8-12) is at Robert E. Lee High School. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) uses standards-based education reform with measurable goals to improve individual student outcomes in education.

The Head Start program, is a nationally funded early childhood education program for low-income children who are not yet old enough to attend school. Generally the ages of head start students are five years old and younger. President Lyndon Johnson initiated the program during his war on poverty. “The Head Start program carries an implicit goal of improving equity among children by targeting vulnerable groups, mostly low-income children, a disproportionate share of whom are racial or ethnic minorities” (Joshi). President Johnson believed providing minorities educational preparedness would ensure a better education overall and stem the tide of poverty.
