  • Poverty as a classroom issue
    BC is the only province in Canada without a poverty reduction plan and 20% of all our children live in poverty. This workshop helps teachers to develop an awareness of the issue of poverty and its implication for our students. It will provide challenges for teachers on the assumptions we make about children living in poverty and provide strategies for teachers on how to support children who may be experiencing discrimination at school because of their socio-economic status.
  • You Can Make a Difference to People Living in Poverty 
    Participants will raise their awareness on poverty issues in their classrooms by using the BCTF Poverty Survey Results.  They will assess their own school's, local's and community needs. Then they will be provided with the opportunity to work in groups on a plan of action that they can be done during the workshop to address their student's needs on issues related to poverty.
