ABOUT THE BOOK A Framework for Understanding Poverty provides important insight into the nation’s ongoing difficulty educating poor children. Students from impoverished backgrounds at all levels of America’s education system achieve success at lower rates than students who are not impoverished. The author, Ruby Payne, suggests that individuals who have experienced generational poverty—that is, individuals whose parents also grew up in poverty—behave in certain characteristics ways that put them at a disadvantage in institutional settings like public school. Payne defines generational poverty as different from “situational poverty,” that is the condition of poverty caused by lack of resources due to a particular event like death, chronic illness, or divorce. The idea is that raising oneself out of situational poverty is easier that raising oneself out of generational poverty. MEET THE AUTHOR Jeff Davis is a life long educator with a Ph.D. in English Studies who has taught at both the high school and university levels. He is also an artist and an amateur anthropologist who is a proponent of “First Art,” that art which our ancient ancestors practiced some 30,000 years ago and even earlier. His most recent book, The First-Generation Student Experience, expanded the college student-affairs field describing the challenges of contemporary nontraditional students. Related to his interest in evolutionary biology, he is currently working on a writing pedagogy book that argues that motivation is the most important dimension of the creative process, even more important than skill and native ability. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Payne establishes her working definition of poverty as “the extent to which an individual does without resources” such as financial, emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, support systems, relationships/role models, and knowledge of hidden rules (8). The challenge for the school or work setting is to analyze and understand the available resources before problem solving and to utilize opportunities that impact the non-financial resources. She describes “three aspects of language: registers of language, discourse patterns, and story structure (27). Registers of language include frozen, formal, consultative, casual, and intimate. Dropping down one register in the same conversation is socially acceptable; dropping down two registers is socially offensive. Buy a copy to keep reading!

What does it mean to be church? Is it spending an hour on Sunday with people who look, think, and act much as we do? Or is it something more incarnational that seeks out those who are different, the ones living on the margins? For centuries, Christians have presumed that we are to take the gospel to the poor. Instead, the author invites us to receive the gospel from the poor. through a series of encounters with incarcerated, homeless, and impoverised individuals, the author experienced the mysterious power of Christian hospitality that turns strangers into family. Her gift of storytelling brings this mysterious transformation to life.... These twenty stories-within-a-story about what ordinary people can do when they come together across racial, economic, and geographic divides to fight poverty will expand your vision of what it means to be the church. With your eyes opened to the needs and gifts of your neighbors, you too can begin to dream God-sized dreams for a hurting world. And as you pray "Thy kingdom come on earth," you will be inspired to live in such a way as to make it happen in your own community. - Publisher info.

This insightful book gives suggestions on increasing academic rigor of the middle school male student, increasing consistent student attendance, and decreasing discipline referrals. This book gives situational examples and possible suggestions to help single parents, teachers, administrators, board members, and the male student to overcome obstacles to be successful. Washington believes that bonding should initially take place early in the relationship of the teacher to student and student to teacher. Much like a client coming to a store for specific items, the store owner has to get to know his customer in order to effectively serve this individual for continued customer satisfaction. The same principles apply for teachers getting to know their students. Oftentimes, this notion is not developed because of constant new initiatives being introduced to teachers without lasting results. Hence, mentoring of students can eliminate many problems schools face. Using the suggestions offered in this book will cause increase academic performance and attendance, while decreasing discipline referrals tremendously.
