Small changes in classroom interactions can make a big difference for traumatized students. When teachers are proactive and responsive to the needs of students suffering from traumatic experiences and make small changes in the classroom that foster a feeling of safety, it makes a huge difference in their ability to learn. In this 1-hour self-directed experience participants develop a shared understanding of what trauma is and how it may show up in classroom, and explore strategies and practices that will meet and support the needs of students coping with trauma.
