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.

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."

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.

This course focuses on helping experienced and beginner educators understand how to increase student achievement by addressing the brain's natural learning channels, using five specific instructional approaches: responding to the five basic needs of all learners (survival/physiological and safety needs; belonging; empowerment and esteem; freedom and self-actualization; and fun); teaching to all of the senses (kinesthetic, tactual, auditory, visual, olfactory, and gustatory); reinforcing five specific cognitive processes that help the brain integrate information (comparing and contrasting new information to old, conceptualizing or formulating a name for things, comprehending or practicing the concept, and combining or incorporating it into everyday life); teaching to the perceptual and organizational-learning styles (global, sequential, abstract, and concrete); and addressing certain personality or temperament styles (intuitive feelers, intuitive thinkers, sensing judgers, and sensing perceivers). Using an instructional process that allows participants to experience these five approaches from a learner's perspective then applying them in their own classrooms from a teacher's perspective, class members will gain expertise in helping their students acquire, process, recall, and apply the skills and content that lead to academic success.

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.

Participants will learn how to select and use structured intellectual controversies that will: increase student engagement, intellectual curiosity, motivation to learn, leadership, decision-making, communication, and conflict management skills. Participants will increase their understanding of how to use cooperative learning with their students to teach the social skills of participation, cooperation, and consensus.

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.
