1. Childhood Trauma and Classroom Resiliency (CURI 6532)

Program: Utica

Location: Remote (n/a, n/)

Audience: Teachers

Dates: 6/26/2021 to 6/30/2021

CURI 6532 SUNY Empire State College
How does traumatic experiences impact a child? What can we do about it? Aversive Childhood Experiences (ACE) may cause a student to have academic problems, acting out behaviors, and poor relationships with classmates and school staff. The negative effects of ACEs lead to deficits in attention, learning and retrieval, language and communication skills, and memory recall, thus effecting students' academic performance and social skills. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of ACEs one has experienced has a direct correlation to the education level one achieves. When teachers are trauma informed, learn effective responses to student trauma, and how to help foster and instill resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom, children have better learning outcomes: building foundations for better health, success, and positive interactions-in school and in life.

This course will present the core concepts of ACEs, stress, trauma, restoration, self-care, and provide research-based strategies & practices to enhance resilience in the classroom environment. Class participants will be able to analyze and apply five components of a trauma informed classroom: ensuring safety, establishing trustworthiness, maximizing choice, maximizing collaboration, and prioritizing empowerment. Participants will be taught to avoid secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue by being aware of personal self-care. 3 graduate credits.

How does traumatic experiences impact a child? What can we do about it? Aversive Childhood Experiences (ACE) may cause a student to have academic problems, acting out behaviors, and poor relationships with classmates and school staff. The negative effects of ACEs lead to deficits in attention, learning and retrieval, language and communication skills, and memory recall, thus effecting students' academic performance and social skills. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of ACEs one has experienced has a direct correlation to the education level one achieves. When teachers are trauma informed, learn effective responses to student trauma, and how to help foster and instill resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom, children have better learning outcomes: building foundations for better health, success, and positive interactions-in school and in life.

This course will present the core concepts of ACEs, stress, trauma, restoration, self-care, and provide research-based strategies & practices to enhance resilience in the classroom environment. Class participants will be able to analyze and apply five components of a trauma informed classroom: ensuring safety, establishing trustworthiness, maximizing choice, maximizing collaboration, and prioritizing empowerment. Participants will be taught to avoid secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue by being aware of personal self-care. 3 graduate credits.

Do we need active learning in today's classroom? Active learning is a form of learning in which teaching strives to involve students in the learning process more directly than in other methods. Active learning is important in the contemporary classroom. It creates a high level of self-monitoring, checking for understanding, and the application of various strategies. In doing this it helps students distinguish and differentiate between important and unimportant information, analyze, compare and contrast and dig deeper for meaning. This course is designed to help educators determine if contemporary classrooms serve as a context for active learning. In this course, participants will explore various practical active learning strategies and will learn how to successfully implement them into the classroom. Some of these strategies will include Flipped Classroom, Collaborative Grouping, Interactive Games, Stations, Reciprocal Questioning and Flexible Seating and Space Design. These strategies involve students working together and individually. Participants will learn how to create the right design for engaging students. its.

How does traumatic experiences impact a child? What can we do about it? Aversive Childhood Experiences (ACE) may cause a student to have academic problems, acting out behaviors, and poor relationships with classmates and school staff. The negative effects of ACEs lead to deficits in attention, learning and retrieval, language and communication skills, and memory recall, thus effecting students' academic performance and social skills. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of ACEs one has experienced has a direct correlation to the education level one achieves. When teachers are trauma informed, learn effective responses to student trauma, and how to help foster and instill resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom, children have better learning outcomes: building foundations for better health, success, and positive interactions-in school and in life.

This course will present the core concepts of ACEs, stress, trauma, restoration, self-care, and provide research-based strategies & practices to enhance resilience in the classroom environment. Class participants will be able to analyze and apply five components of a trauma informed classroom: ensuring safety, establishing trustworthiness, maximizing choice, maximizing collaboration, and prioritizing empowerment. Participants will be taught to avoid secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue by being aware of personal self-care. 3 graduate credits.

In this course, participants will examine the causes of toxic classrooms and more importantly learn tools and strategies to address the stress in our schools. Mindfulness allows educators to discover their professional impact through five essential elements - Happiness, Engagement, Alliances, Risk and Thought (HEART). Through this exploration of the "heartprint" they leave on each child, teachers will be able to explore how their personal and professional qualities impact the students in their room. The author to the course text, Dr. Timothy Kanold indicates, "HEART provides a road map for the path of an educational professional: Professionals are emotionally more positive and thus Happier, are generally more Engaged in their work, seek Alliances as part of happier collaborative communities, are more willing to take focused Risks, and exhibit a Thought and wisdom practice that results in increased student learning."

How does traumatic experiences impact a child? What can we do about it? Aversive Childhood Experiences (ACE) may cause a student to have academic problems, acting out behaviors, and poor relationships with classmates and school staff. The negative effects of ACEs lead to deficits in attention, learning and retrieval, language and communication skills, and memory recall, thus effecting students' academic performance and social skills. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number of ACEs one has experienced has a direct correlation to the education level one achieves. When teachers are trauma informed, learn effective responses to student trauma, and how to help foster and instill resiliency skills necessary to thrive in the classroom, children have better learning outcomes: building foundations for better health, success, and positive interactions-in school and in life.

This course will present the core concepts of ACEs, stress, trauma, restoration, self-care, and provide research-based strategies & practices to enhance resilience in the classroom environment.

What is Digital Literacy? Digital Literacy is a broad term that encompasses nuts and bolts of skills and ethical obligations. (Common Sense Media, 2019) In January of 2020, the New York State Board of Regents approved the first ever learning standards for Computer Science and Digital Fluency. In a collaborative process that included an intense needs assessment, the K-12 standards have been organized into 5 categories: Impacts of Computing, Computational Thinking, Networks and Systems Design, Cybersecurity and Digital Literacy.

This course will focus on digital literacy but include a brief introduction to the 4 other components of the new standards. Digital literacy includes both seamless integration of digital tools and skills across content areas as well as purposeful direct instruction on topics that include but are not limited to digital citizenship, safety, etiquette, privacy, laws and wellness. Through the exploration of these topics, participants will acquire skills, tools and knowledge to incorporate digital literacy across content areas and grade levels appropriately to enhance instruction. 3 graduate credits.

Throughout the course, participants learn to apply five specific criteria (the SCORE model) that are characteristic of highly effective, brain-compatible activities. Participants use these criteria continuously to analyze the activities in which they participate, as well as those they plan, ensuring that each includes relevant learning and life skills, meets curriculum requirements, addresses organizational issues, plans to meet desired outcomes, and assesses mastery. With a focus on unlocking the creative potential of both teachers and their students, participants learn how to position effective activities-introductory, informational, practice, review, and culminating- throughout the entire learning process, and provide multiple pathways to learning that are highly engaging while promoting depth of knowledge. 3 graduate credits.

In this course teachers will learn how to create "cultures of thinking": places where a group's collective as well as individual thinking is valued, visible, and actively promoted every day. They will learn the eight cultural forces that educators must master to transform our schools from the old standard of education to the new model requiring global thinkers, problem solvers, and independent learners. The teachers will learn the eight forces of language, time environment, opportunities, routines, modeling, interactions, and expectations. They will learn the latest research behind each cultural force, techniques to utilize the force in an educational setting, and strategies to change their classroom and school environments. They will also learn and develop the three core ideas based on the cultures: schools must be about developing students' thinking dispositions, the need to make students' thinking visible, and the crucial role of classroom culture in supporting and shaping learning. The course will also contain strategies to move toward transformation in teacher's schools and classroom. They will explore how to collaborate in a positive way with peers, how to build a vision across a school district and how to create opportunities for this transformation.
