This month's GradNation webinar discussed the impacts of poverty and adversity on academic achievement and to two research-based strategies for supporting students. Participants learned about the research base that sheds light on how poverty, adversity, and outside-of-school factors impact students’ academic success. Guest speakers included Turnaround for Children and City Connects, two organizations that are successfully addressing adolescent needs outside of the classroom. Presenters shared lessons learned and resources from their models and offered insights into how the models could be replicated.
