This session is ideal for teachers that are new or beginning to develop an understanding of trauma-informed practices. Engaging in this virtual experience will support teachers to identify a trauma response and be better prepared to support a student in need.
I recognize and respond to student needs.
Define trauma; what it is, who experiences it, how it impacts students, how it impacts learning, and what the overall long-term impacts are.
Explore articles that offer strategies, classroom and school-wide practices, and scenarios as examples to practice responding to trauma and developing systems that are aware and responsive.
Build and get peer feedback on a plan to build trauma-informed practice(s) in their classroom or greater school community.
