Students from low-income families are in danger of being marginalized by instructors and peers, which affects their academic performance. Children from households with less resources, for example, may dress and speak differently or be less experienced with literature and after school clubs (Woolfolk, p. 226). The instructor may expect them to not be as skilled as their peers. These expectations then are institutionalized, with insufficient and restricted learning resources for these kids. Lowered standards and less quality education can lead students to have a negative view of self. This can make low-income children feel hopeless and makes them more likely to drop out (Woolfolk, p.226).One of the ways to prevent the situation above, is for teacher’s to be mindful of how they treat their students. Awareness is the first step into fixing a broken system, so educating teachers on how underestimation can harm low-income students can help improve that aspect of it. Of course there are many other factors of why low-income students struggle more than their other peers and this could be fewer access to resources that require money or other supplies they do not have. Free and inclusive programs put on by the schools can improve this such as a library, so that children have free access to books.
There are several different factors that go into the idea that low-income students often fall below middle and upper-income students. Unfortunately, we are now seeing a rise in the number of students that fall under this category in schools. These students are performing way below their peers because they are lacking many supports at home that middle and upper-income students may be receiving. School can oftentimes be the only positive place for children, but when they are struggling academically this may turn into a negative. It is important that educators are aware of what occurs outside of school in order to best understand their students and approach effectively teaching them. To begin, outside of the school day, these low-income students are often going home to parents who did not receive a great education or graduated high school. Because of this, they may struggle to support their children in completing their homework outside of school. Low-income students may also go home to a single-parent who has a lot on their plate and can not dedicate the time needed to support their children’s learning. They also may be homeless or not have the resources to spend time outside of school to complete their work. These students lives outside of the school day are greatly affecting their academic performances.
During the school day, these children may be anxious and worried about their life outside of school. They may have fears of returning home at the end of the day for various reasons; some listed above. This may keep their mind elsewhere during the day and not focused on their academics. In addition, students may not be getting the proper meals they should be having at home. If a student comes to school without having breakfast, this will result in them becoming easily distracted and not focused. They also may lack the appropriate amount of sleep needed to focus throughout a long day of sitting, listening, and interacting with their others. Unfortunately, students today are facing things that are unfair and out of their controlling, which is impacting them academically.

Positive writing styles in the workplace are one of the most important and effective writing styles in the working environment. Speaking or writing in a positive way puts a better image of the company. While speaking start with a smile, writing with a welcoming text. Always focus on what can be done not what you can’t do. Don’t say “I cant get to this discussion till next week” rather “I will be able to do this discussion next week”. Always suggest a solution to the issues at hand. Also never place the blame on others. Example… waiting till last minute to do my assignment and blaming the IT because I couldn’t get into the assignment saying “its not my fault”. Take responsibility and find a solution to fix the issue at hand ” Here’s what ill do to fix it” Ill work ahead next time in case of this type of issue.
According to our text book chapter five: the process of creating a business message is by planning, writing, and reviewing. The first thing we need to do is to identify the goal and main purpose of the message we are trying to deliver. We must follow a positive writing style to deliver the correct message at the work place, such as using proper grammar, punctuation, abstaining from using slang words, or type in all caps. One important step in the writing process is to review our work, by using different writing tools such as the fair test, proofreading before sending the message, and getting a second opinion from a coworker or friend. Getting to know our audience by gathering up information and trying to include something of a value to them to capture their attention better. We should always try to keep a positive tone and remain consistent with the message, without any exaggerations or any modifications to the facts. Focusing on delivering a clear message and avoiding confusing statements like saying ‘no problem’ instead of ‘you’re welcome’.
