About the Event
Students entering the classroom with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues are often at a disadvantage and struggle to keep up with the demands of traditional learning. Brains aﬀected by trauma require a diﬀerent kind of instruction—and a special kind of care.
Children who have experienced trauma in their pasts enter our schools just like any other student; however, these children’s brains operate and process information somewhat differently than children with non-traumatic histories.
The students who enter our classrooms carrying baggage we could not ever imagine. The students we are held accountable for during high-stakes testing. And there’s hope for them, for a better understanding, with resources and strategies that can help these students become successful!
Teachers will leave this workshop with strategies to build resilience and grit in even the most challenging students, ideas for encouraging positive behavior and creating effective classroom management, and a plan of action that can be immediately put in place to start increasing student motivation.
You’ll learn how these struggling learners’ brains work and how to create a classroom environment that is sensitive to the needs of all students, regardless of background.
