Many schools and districts are planning and preparing for a transition back to some form of hybrid/in-person learning. In our conversations with school administrators and staff, we are hearing the need for practical and useful resources and ideas to help respond to these transitions.
In response to our conversations with you, we are creating and compiling
trauma-responsive resources for transitioning back to school.
This includes visuals for ten trauma-responsive tools that we already know work in the Trauma Responsive School Transition Handout linked below. We also recently convened a panel of educators from Redwood Elementary in Oregon who shared their experiences and helpful advice.
This page will be updated as we learn more and develop additional tools. If you have ideas or feedback, please share them with us!
- A Trauma-Responsive School Transition online workshop. April 26, 4-6pm. We will share specific tools and strategies to invite student contribution, build community, develop routines, and maintain self-regulation in the context of shifting back to hybrid and in-person learning. You will have an opportunity to brainstorm solutions with peers and will benefit from the ideas of educators from around the country. Reserve your place ASAP.
