Stress and Student Learning
As educators we see first hand the effects of stress on our students. We feel the effect it has on us. This course will explore the consequences and effects of stress. Stress is a common issue that does affect and will affect all of our students at some time. Educators will learn how to identify individuals under stress or in stressful situations. Participants will discuss what are the factors that cause stress most, and the different ways of coping with stress. Teachers will discuss how to greatly improve your student’s mental and physical well being on a day-to-day basis. Teachers will learn strategies for helping students self-regulate, to manage moving from one class to another (transitional strategies), and reducing outside daily noise. The importance mindsets will also be discussed. This course is a must for all educators levels K-12.
