Understanding and Engaging Under-Resourced College Students offers a fresh look at the influence of economic class on teaching and learning in higher education. It provides post-secondary educators, administrators and student support services personnel with a comprehensive and focused look at both the needs of under-resourced students and strategies for their success.
Building on the research of Ruby Payne, this book will help you as an educator to recognise the impact of economic class and factors on student preparedness, and use your knowledge of students’ backgrounds to build on their existing resources, experiences and abilities for optimum student engagement and success.
