When viewed through an economic lens, poverty can be defined as an absence of resources. Since 1995, Framework's basic premise is that the middle-class understandings of those who work with children and adults in poverty are often ill-suited for connecting with and helping people build up resources and rise out of poverty. Now, 18 years and 1.5 million copies later, Framework: A Cognitive Approach has been revised, updated and expanded.
The 5th edition features an enhanced chapter on instruction and achievement; greater emphasis on the thinking, community, and learning patterns involved in breaking out of poverty; plentiful citations, new case studies, and data: more details findings about interventions, resources, and causes of poverty, and a review of the outlook for people in poverty and those who work with them. This audiobook is read by the author, Ruby K. Payne, Ph.D.
lots of good information. multiple references to charts that you need to see, not hear.

Love this book! it is very eye opening and helpful to understanding many of our students!
this information should be taught to teachers and students from headstart forward. it would be invaluable to them.
As an educator with ten years experience, I will need to listen to this book at least 9 more times to fully digest all of the golden nuggets of information given. This book really helps connect the dots as to why some children are labeled with behavior problems. This is a book that needs to be on every Teacher's bookshelf.
"Peerless" comes to mind as a word to describe this work. What a refreshingly useful treatise on such a prevalent yet befuddling American condition.
This helped me better understand the students I'm teaching. I do wish I had bought a hard copy because it would be an excellent resource, but I learned a lot listening.
