Prepare educators to help every student feel safe, be connected, get regulated, and get ready to learn
The fear, anxiety, and losses of the COVID-19 era have left students of all ages vulnerable and hurting. In this interactive half-day session, experienced teacher trainer and author of Supporting Students and Staff After COVID-19, Ms. Jen will prepare educators to help every student feel safe, be connected, get regulated, and get ready to learn.
After a brief explanation of collective trauma, educators will explore current strengths and worries related to students in their community. Next, educators will discover how to prepare for a wide range of staff, family, and student needs using the four essentials of a trauma-sensitive school. Specifically, educators will explore how to implement trauma-sensitive community-building lessons in their classrooms. Participants will also walk away with a new lesson plan they can use and/or modify with students of all ages. Finally, as educators begin working on their own trauma-sensitive plan for the school year, there will be an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and ask questions.
