A majority of public school students live in poverty, and K–12 teachers have the power to change their futures for the better. To meet this goal, The Handbook for Poor Students, Rich Teaching guides readers through seven high-impact mindsets: (1) the relational mindset, (2) the achievement mindset, (3) the positivity mindset, (4) the rich classroom climate mindset, (5) the enrichment mindset, (6) the engagement mindset, and (7) the graduation mindset. A companion to Poor Students, Rich Teaching: Seven High-Impact Mindsets for Students From Poverty (Rev. ed.), this powerful handbook provides a plethora of practical tools, organizers, worksheets, and surveys designed to help K–12 teachers fully embrace the critical mindsets that lead to richer teaching and profound learning for all students.

In this stirring follow-up to the award-winning Fostering Resilient Learners, Kristin Van Marter Souers and Pete Hall take you to the next level of trauma-invested practice. To get there, they explain, educators need to build a "nest"—a positive learning environment shaped by three new Rs of education: relationship, responsibility, and regulation.
What teachers say to students—when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories—affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. In What We Say and How We Say It Matter, Mike Anderson digs into the nuances of language in the classroom. This book’s many examples will help teachers examine their language habits and intentionally improve their classroom practice so their language matches and supports their goals.
