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.
