From Coping to Hoping: Teaching Students to Thrive through Social Trauma

From Coping to Hoping: Teaching Students to Thrive through Social Trauma
Saturday, 2:15 pm to 3:45 pm -- Maryland 240

This workshop offers a framework for how to adequately teach the sensibilities needed to deal with the socially traumatic stress of everyday, urban life & create learning conditions that foster radical healing (Ginwright, 2010) & critical hope (Duncan-Andrade, 2009). The workshop will also provide the opportunity for participants to explore the relevance of these approaches to their lives as students or practice as community based educators, classroom teachers of all subject areas & grade levels, and school leaders.
