It is a stressful time in education. To carry out the work we want to accomplish in the classroom we must first understand the impact of stress on the brain and our students' basic needs. Using the principles of the Neurosequential Model and traumatology helps us to better address factors such as disruptive behavior, low motivation and other behaviors that teachers are currently seeing in their classrooms. First, we must learn how to reach our students, then we can teach our students.
In addition to the online courses already available to members at no cost at all, there is now a new Mini-Course Series. The Mini-Course Series consists of various pre-recorded webinars that allow participants to watch the webinar of their choice and then take a short quiz. Upon successful completion of the quiz, a certificate of completion documenting 0.5 hours of professional learning is issued.
This is a great option for educators needing documentation of professional learning for Career Ladder or other requirements.
