You can create a classroom and school environment where students feel connected and encouraged. Imagine a room filled with young people who are engaged in learning, contribute to problem-solving, and help build their own community.

Introducing our Rooted Relationships: Growing Equitable Classroom Communities series, which brings together the most helpful and practical tools from the latest brain science research, culturally responsive teaching, trauma and attachment theory, and social emotional learning.

You can help children with the social-emotional support and skill-building that they urgently need. Gain resources and learn tools that will make an immediate difference in your classroom and school.

You will explore with us how to:

  • Set-up and consistently hold effective problem-solving class meetings
  • Understand behavior as communication and how you can respond to challenging behavior
  • Apply a trauma-responsive lens so that you can better understand and handle classroom challenges
  • Strengthen your own self-regulation and co-regulation skills
  • Build an equitable learning community so that everyone knows they belong and their voice matters

This course is appropriate for teachers, administrators, counselors, paraprofessionals and youth development program providers.
