About the Course

"In this galvanizing book for all educators, Kristin Souers and Pete Hall explore an urgent and growing issue-- childhood trauma-- and its profound effect on learning and teaching." This is a book study of Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating a Trauma-Sensitive Classroom. In this book, Souers and Hall combine their experiences as a mental health expert and school administrator to inform those working with children spanning from preschool to high school. The book presents readers with a background about trauma and how it affects the brain. Then the authors give strategies to create a trauma-sensitive classroom. In the study, we will record our thoughts about the text and discuss ideas on how to best help the students in our classrooms! This is a must read for any educator working with children who have experienced trauma!

This class was outstanding! It not only gave a clear understanding of how to meet our students' needs, but also how important it is for educators to take care of themselves. Jeremiah is an outstanding leader of this course, as he always provided feedback right away. I highly recommend this course for every educator!

This class was incredibly insightful and provided many strategies on how to interact with students who have experienced trauma. The text for this course also gave me great insight into the eyes of students who have or are experiencing trauma and was a great, easy read! This course is a MUST for teachers who interact with students who experience trauma.
