What do recent research trends tell us about poverty/neurology? What do we know about the science of learning? And how do we use this information to help remove barriers to learning and make knowledge genuinely accessible for our most disadvantaged children? This workshop will offer insights into how poverty impacts the cognitive development of children and what teachers need to be aware of. The session will discuss practical and accessible classroom strategies to support the progress of disadvantaged children. It will include a focus on attention and what the research tells us about techniques for directing attention in the secondary classrooms without compromising learning?
