Most educators have grown up in middle class families with middle class attitudes and middle class ideals.  Therefore, we often find it difficult to understand and to relate to behaviors, beliefs, and social mores different from those to which we have become accustomed. 

Teachers often conclude that students living in poverty have little or no chance of making academic progress or achievement and are therefore, not given the time nor the emphasis of those more aesthetically pleasing children.

Perhaps, a change in our mindset rather than a change in their circumstances can make the real difference!

Google Sites is a great way to easily create web pages for your classroom, club, or special event. It can also be used to share information internally among specific groups of people. Hangouts can be used to enhance your classroom communications in a variety of ways. You can host video chat sessions to provide instruction, communicate with peers, or allow collaboration between students. Come see how you might use these two tools in your classroom.
