Disrupting Poverty: 5 Powerful Classroom Strategies

Dr. William Parrett will share the powerful voices of teachers—many of whom grew up in poverty—to amplify the five classroom practices that permeate the culture of successful high-poverty schools:

• Caring relationships and advocacy
• High expectations and support
• Commitment to equity
• Professional accountability for learning
• The courage and will to act
