    Active discourse in classrooms unlocks the treasures of literacy, social-emotional wellness, engagement and cognition. Let’s explore the benefits of academic conversations for multilingual learners and their monolingual peers. Participants will walk away with research-based activities that will get students talking, thinking, and reasoning right away!

  • Trauma-Sensitive Classrooms

    This training will cover the essentials of trauma-sensitive practice, starting with building an understanding of how trauma is defined, its causes, and its impact. The session will also seek to respond to pressing questions facing school-based staff: Without knowing which students have experienced trauma, how can a school create a culture that is sensitive to trauma and actively seeks to reduce retraumatization? How does trauma sensitivity fit into a tiered system of support? Participants will have the chance to reflect on their own and their school’s practice as they think about next steps in building a trauma-sensitive learning environment.
