When we put youth voice at the center of our classrooms, transformative things can happen—rich discussions unfold, participation increases, and students take a more active role in their own learning. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to see and hear what can happen when student voices are placed at the heart of social-emotional learning (SEL) instruction. Participants learn how to use Youth Communication’s uniquely relevant teen-written stories to generate discussion of SEL skills, engage in group discussion, and pair activities that support active listening and student engagement.

About This Event

Educators frequently work with students and families who have been exposed to trauma in their lives; in some cases, multiple traumas. As you teach, support, and develop relationships with your students, you learn about their lives, often revealing intimate details about their trauma experiences. Through time, this ongoing exposure to students’ traumas can lead to compassion fatigue or even educator burnout. It is critical to learn about the signs and effects of vicarious trauma. Additionally, this webinar will share the importance of establishing a self-care routine.
