Instability affects your students, your classroom, and you

Educating Students Experiencing Homelessness, Instability, and Disengagement by Ruby Payne examines a social cognitive framework that includes the importance of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). It also discusses the positive influence of safety and belonging on the prefrontal cortex.

Educating Students provides tools for negotiating the abstract realities of school and raising achievement, it reveals strategies for calming students, and it explores how to build a wider community of support. Payne also tells how the instability of resources, time demands, and the demands of the environment negatively impact the ANS and how to address this problem.

Through reading this book, you will learn how to:

  • Intervene when students become disengaged
  • Support students who are experiencing homelessness and instability
  • Teach students to deal with the abstract realities of school, including the Internet and digital realms, the importance of planning, and communicating in formal register
  • Address the destructive triad of homelessness, instability, and disengagement
  • Define the role of the ANS in learning and behavior

“I love the message and the fact that this is one of the few books that tells how to help students with all aspects of their trauma while also holding them accountable. It ties in the science holistically, including social, emotional, physical, and academic.” —Dr. Tondelayo Westbrooks, assistant professor, Special Education Pre-Service Teachers, Lincoln University of Missouri, Jefferson City, Missouri
