Trauma-informed Pedagogy and Reflective Practice
In this experience, teachers will incorporate their growing knowledge of trauma into their pedagogical design. Each week, the instructor will offer readings and discussion prompts, and participants will reflect on their current classroom practice. Topics will include student voice and choice, balancing predictability and flexibility, fostering class community, and incorporating student strengths and interests. Participants will be encouraged to do an action-research cycle, incorporating a key component of trauma-informed classroom practice.
Format: This is a 4 week online, asynchronous learning experience using readings and discussion. Course begins April 23, 2018.
This event fulfills Competency 3 and 4 of the Trauma-Conscious Teaching Microcredential.
