NDSCA will be offering a 6 week book study starting July 12-August 23rd. This course will be self-paced and delivered via Google Classroom. Learning will be based on the text, Fostering Resilient Learners: Strategies for Creating A Trauma Sensitive Classroom. Grounding in research and the authors’ experience working with trauma-affected students and their teachers, Fostering Resilient Learners will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. Participants will read assigned chapters, answer posted questions on Google Classroom, and will react and post to two other participant’s post each week. At the end of the study, a two page reflection paper will be required.
Understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom.

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.
