Ch. 9: Creating Relationships

A Framework for Understanding Poverty


Why do people leave poverty?


Four Reasons People Leave Poverty

(p. 61)


1.) A goal or vision of something they want to be or have.


2.) A situation that is so painful that anything would be better.

3.) Someone "sponsors" them (i.e., an educator or
spouse or mentor or role model who shows them a
different way or convinces them that they could live
differently).


4.) A specific talent or ability that provides an opportunity for
them.

HONORING STUDENTS =
ENHANCED LEARNING




Dr. Payne states that "to honor
students as a human being worthy of
respect and care is to establish a
relationship that will provide for
enhanced learning" (p. 111).


Honoring students



“ A successful relationship occurs when
emotional deposits are made to the
student, emotional withdrawals are
avoided, and students are respected.”

Deposits


Seek first to understand.


Keeping promises


Kindnesses, courtesies


Clarifying expectations

entertainment provided by the
individual.


Acceptance of what the

Understand the importance of
personal freedom, speech, and

the humor of the individual.



Insistence and demands for
full explanation about a
person or situation



Insistence on the middle class
view of the relationships.



Using the
parent voice

his/ her goals
.

Conclusion




“For students and adults from poverty, the
primary motivation for their success will be in
their relationships.”



Develop relationships by asking for student
opinion of work. Check for student
engagement.

Why should you check for
engagement?


Students can do quality
work when they have a
clear understanding and are
excited about their finished
product.
