  8. Trauma-Sensitive Schools: Learning Communities Transforming Children's Lives, K-5

    Along with the failure of 'zero tolerance' policies to resolve issues of school safety and a new understanding of children's disruptive behaviour, educators are changing the way they view children's academic and social problems. In response, the trauma-sensitive schools movement presents a new vision for promoting children's success. This book introduces this approach and provides F-5 educators with explanations of current research and dozens of ideas. Integrating research on children's neurodevelopment and educational best practices, this book will build the capacity of teachers and administrators to successfully manage the behaviour of children with symptoms of complex developmental trauma.

  9. Cultivating Mindfulness in the Classroom: The Classroom Strategies Series

    In Cultivating mindfulness in the classroom, author Jeanie M Iberlin and contributor Mike Ruyle advocate that F–12 teachers must use mindfulness practice in the classroom so students know how to cope with their emotions as they learn and grow. They illustrate that mindfulness is an effective, low-cost way for educators to help students manage their stress, focus their brains for extended periods of time and increase their emotional intelligence. Teachers can foster better classroom cultures and higher student achievement when they make students more mindful of their emotions.
