Teaching Our Homeless Children
Sheldon, George H.
Online Submission
This paper discusses some of the major concerns associated with the instructional process of our homeless children. The reader is provided with a brief overview of the prevalence of this population. According to the National Center on Family Homelessness the number of school children who are homeless is growing rapidly with 1.4 to 1.5 million children out of 3.5 million homeless people (National Center on Family Homelessness, 2009). This is followed with a brief listing of characteristics of homeless children. The author presents some ideas on how do our educational communities teach homeless children and provide them with tools to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness? How can administrators support their staff's effort in providing an engaging instructional setting while meeting the unique needs of our students? (Contains 2 tables.)
