UPDATED! Now with unit calendar and visual assignment! Many of my students claim this is the most memorable book they have ever read for a class. A few years ago, I integrated Ruby Payne's ideas about poverty. My students--many of them from impoverished homes themselves--are fascinated by Payne's theories, often resulting in a lively discussion about the accuracy and inaccuracies of the theories. This is a great way to synthesize two intriguing texts. Enjoy!
