"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the rigor of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

Post Pandemic Support for Students – Part 1: Early Considerations

Print Based Course Printed Course

The COVID-19 pandemic is first and foremost a health crisis. The severe disruption is felt by many families around the world and home schooling is not only a massive shock to parents’ productivity, but also to children’s social life and learning. The global lockdown of education institutions is going to cause major (and likely unequal) interruption in students’ learning. This course explores an urgent and growing issue--childhood trauma--and its current profound effect on learning and teaching. Grounded in research and the experience of working with trauma-affected students, this course will help you cultivate a trauma-sensitive learning environment for students across all content areas, grade levels, and educational settings. Within this course, you will begin to understand what trauma is and how it hinders the learning, motivation, and success of all students in the classroom. In addition, strategies will be offered that will help you to build strong relationships and create a safe space to enable students to assimilate back into learning once schools are back in session. There will also be some consideration in ways to deal with stress and burnout with essential self-care techniques that will help you and your students flourish. The projected outcome of this course is to provide educators with the knowledge, understanding, and methodologies for creating trauma sensitive classrooms as we move through the pandemic, as well as offer ideas to help build relationships that allow students to grow, thrive, and learn at high levels once school is back in session.
