Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom

Course Description: This book study runs from March 23-May 9, 2021. Join us for an online book study of the text, “Fostering Resilient Learners” by Kristin Souers with Pete Hall.  Participants will meet for a live virtual meeting on March 23, from 5:00-6:30 pm, then follow the guidelines on the syllabus for completion of reading and required tasks in the Moodle platform to extend learning. A second live virtual meeting will be held on April 29, from 5:00-6:30.

 

Fostering Resilient Learners is a text grounded in research and the author’s experiences supporting teachers who work with students affected by trauma.  Students with disabilities are more likely to experience traumatizing events and to have greater difficulty with self-regulation after a traumatic event has occurred. Other developmental challenges can be exacerbated by trauma. This study will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, abilities, service delivery models and educational settings. Participants will specifically connect content to supporting their students with disabilities. Through reflection posts throughout the course, participants will respond to prompts regarding trauma and students with disabilities. Participants will gain a trauma-informed approach to students with behavioral disabilities.  

Participants will learn specific strategies to help:

  • Understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom, especially students with disabilities. 

  • Build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to learn at high levels.

  • Adopt a strengths-based approach that leads you to recalibrate how you view destructive student behaviors and to perceive what students need to break negative cycles.

  • Head off frustration and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish.

Throughout the book study, we will use the questions and exercises from the book and supplemental resources to encourage reflection and classroom application. Upon completion of this course, participants will earn 20 ESE inservice points.

Target Audience: General Education Teachers (K-12), Exceptional Education Teachers (K-12), Behavior Specialists, Teachers of students with Emotional/Behavioral disabilities, Counselors, Social Workers and Administrators.
