A Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop
Instructor: The Glen
Description:

If you didn't grow up in poverty, you may be unaware of the "hidden rules" that govern many aspects of life for the poor.  Those experiencing daily instability are often focused on survival, and support systems which are taken for granted by the middle class and wealthy and experienced differently.  Sometimes family support is nonexistent.  If you work with those from poverty, a deeper understanding of their strengths and challenges helps you create opportunities for greater success and satisfaction for those you serve, and for you.

Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and pwerful model which raises our awareness about some key issues that people face daily when they have few resources.  Based in part on Dr. Ruby K. Payne's myth-shattering A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges reaches out to millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with people in poverty.  Attending this workshop helps you and your organization become even more aware of the impact of generational and situational poverty on those experiencing daily instability and on those who serve them.  During this 4-hour workshop, you will learn serious information in a fun and interesting way.  This workshop:

  • Provides an overview of the Bidges Out of Poverty Model;
  • Uses the mental models of poverty, middle class and wealth to develop the Bridges concepts;
  • Engages participants in developing a greater understanding of the hidden rules of class and how 11 specific resources can build capacity for those in poverty;
  • Introduces the Bridges concepts of learning about and developing solutions using the triple lens approach.

Teaching Math with Google Apps with Alice Keeler

Alice Keeler

Alice Keeler's third book Teaching Math with Google Apps, focuses specifically on Math classrooms and how to use Google Apps to radically change how students interact and think about their Math content.

Teaching math in the 21st century is different, it asks students to be critical thinkers, model their math, critique the reasoning of others, and to analyze.  Teaching Math with Google Apps on September 27, 2017 will show that the depth of knowledge is NOT how hard a task is but how much critical thinking a student is engaged in.  Alice Keeler will discuss ways to use Google Apps to increase the DOK for your students.  Teaching Math with Google Apps will show you how to:

  • Create engaging activities that make math relevant to your students
  • Interact with students throughout the learning process
  • Spend less time repeating instructions and grading work
  • Improve your lessons so you can better meet your students' needs
