- Students that are affected by poverty need to know that we have empathy, not sympathy for them. This will help bridge differences in the the classroom because it begins with the teacher.
- By providing a safe learning environment we can help bridge differences in the classroom because students that are affected by poverty will be more willing to share as well as learn. Once we can achieve that it is down hill from there.

- — Jessica Anderson (@TriSciCurious)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:16:41A2: Self-paced learning. Give choice within assignments. Give Lexile leveled text for Ss to read. #mtedchat
- One effective way to differentiate a lesson to meet the needs of students is to provide options within assignments. We can also provide opportunities for students to work at their own pace and provide group activities that allow students this opportunity.
- When differentiating a lesson to meet the needs of students we can provide students with different ways to demonstrate their understanding. We have to be aware that summative assessments are not the only way to see how well our students achieved the learning goals.

- Partnering with community resources is a great way to support students with emotional and behavioral challenges. I have seen this work at my school site because there are students that attend a group once a week and it has changed their outlook on education.
- — Eric Windover (@ewindover)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:28:53A3: functional behavior analysis (FBA) utilized to create behavior intervention plan (BIP); therapeutic crisis intervention; PBIS #mtedchat
- Creating behavior intervention plans is a great way to support students with emotional and behavioral challenges. By creating these plans students will know exactly what is expected of them in the classroom. This is also a great opportunity for students to inform teachers of issues that they may be facing.

- — Laurie Meston (@lauriemeston)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:40:36A4: Give Ss opportunities to share their cultural backgrounds & customs. Ensure that the language used in class is "inclusive" #mtedchat
- Giving students an opportunity to share their cultural background is a key component to create a positive learning environment. This will also bring about awareness to the rest of the class of the diverse class that they are in. By promoting this in our classroom we are creating a society within our class that strives for equity.
- — Michele Nokleby (@mnokleby)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:41:19A4 Lots of quality literature with characters from all corners of planet and circumstances go a long way in a white bread town #mtedchat
- One effective way to bring cultural and racial awareness in our classroom is to implement it in our lessons. We can have students research or do tasks that are realated to some customs that they are unfamiliar with. This will bring about awareness without having to lecture about different traditions.
- — Crista Anderson (@cristama)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:45:02Q5: What can we do to connect with and encourage motivationally challenged or disengaged students to encourage growth? #MTedchat
- — Travis Niemeyer (@NiemeyerMr)Wed, Apr 22 2015 02:46:46A5) Starts with growth mindset - Carol Dweck is awesome! #mtedchat Start looking more closely at grading practices and process vs. product
- Teaching students about a growth mindset is important to help them become successful. We have to inform our students that knowledge is not fixed but that we can continue to grow throughout our lives. Once they believe, they will succeed.
