Huge numbers of our students are caught in storms of trauma—whether stemming from abuse, homelessness, poverty, discrimination, violent neighborhoods, or fears of school shootings or family deportations. This edWebinar focuses on actions that educators can implement to facilitate learning for these students. Identifying positive, connected teacher-student relationships as foundational, Dr. Fisher offers direction for creating an emotionally safe classroom environment in which students find refuge from trauma and a space in which to process events. He shows how social and emotional learning can be woven into the school day; how literacies can be used to help students see a path through challenges; how to empower learners through debate, civic action, and service-learning; and how to use the vital nature of the school community as an agent of change.
This edWebinar will:
- Make a clear case for the need and responsibility of schools to equip students with tools to learn despite the trauma in their lives.
- Show practical classroom instructional and curricular interactions that address trauma while advancing student academic learning.
- Use literacy and civic action as pathways to empowerment.
Provide a method and tools for developing a coherent plan for creating a trauma-sensitive school.
This edWebinar will be of value to preK-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
