The Poverty Simulation/Supporting Children from Poverty in the Classroom (12/7/21)

Targeted Audience:  Assistant Principals, Dean of Instructions and Curriculum, Principals, Interns

Today, educational leaders are called upon to demonstrate a variety of skills that address demands as mandated by our country, state, city, and communities. Assistant Principals must have cutting-edge professional knowledge and skills to ensure they are invaluable assets to their principal, are able to develop and maintain effective systems, instrumental in supporting teachers in their professional growth, and with the ultimate goal of closing gaps in the education and development of all students. Region 10 ESC Administrative Services is committed to serving our Assistant Principals' needs through the Assistant Principal Leadership Academy – APLA.

Important Session Information:

The Poverty Simulation  

This workshop session is a simulation experience developed by the Missouri Association for Community Action. During the simulation, participants pretend to be members of a low-income community attempting to survive four 15-minute weeks of poverty. The simulation relies on role playing techniques and extensive props to help participants understand the day to day challenges faced by families living in poverty.

Supporting Children from Poverty in the Classroom

This workshop session will provide an overview to help individuals understand class differences when working with students from poverty.  Participants will better understand how economic class affects behaviors and mindsets, as well as be introduced to the hidden rules of economic classes. This workshop is based on the book A Framework for Understanding Poverty by Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D.
