    10. 10. Empower Current and Future Educators: A Positive Impact/Intervention<br />“Homelessness is a state in which people are not only excluded from basic shelter, but also from security, a place to belong, intimate relationships, neighbors, and all of the benefits of having a place to call one’s own…Over time, exclusion from one aspect of the normally expected benefits and resources of society leads to exclusion from others, and to a compounding set of reinforcing disadvantages”.<br />10/01/2009<br />By: JoAnn N.

    11. 11. Empower Current and Future Educators: A Positive Impact/Intervention<br />10/01/2009<br />By: JoAnn N. Payne ~ EMAT 620 ~ Fall 2009<br />How can teachers assist homeless children?<br />Realize that your classroom may be a child’s only stable haven. <br />Understand that acting out is a way that children communicate their fear and anxiety. <br />Do not make assumptions about a child’s potential based on his or her living situation. <br />Tell these children that they are capable and have high expectations for their success. <br />Provide a predictable schedule and environment where they feel safe and a sense of belonging<br />Use cooperative learning groups and other techniques to further peer acceptance. <br />Be caring and respectful toward these students and their parents.<br />Leah Davies, M. Ed.<br />
