Description: This course is a continuation of the study of theory and practice learned in EDPD 526 related to the education of students living in or of poverty, with poverty defined as limited access to financial, social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive, or physical resources. Content is grounded by the Center of Excellence to Prepare Teachers of Children of Poverty's six standards for teachers of children of poverty and selected pedagogy from the Center's 25 Best Practices. A lens of cognitive neuroscience is used to consider barriers that can result from life with limited resources, and students explore ways to apply the science of learning to teaching practices in order to remove those barriers that can negatively impact school and life success. Graduate institutional credit (institutional credit means that the hours earned and the grade points are included only in the semester totals, which reflect total hours and credits earned. Neither the grade points nor the hours earned are reflected in the cumulative totals, which reflect total hours and credits toward degrees) may be earned, but EDPD 527 cannot be applied toward the M.Ed. or M.A.T. programs at FMU. Undergraduate institutional credit (see parenthetical explanation above) may also be earned.
