Back to Teaching and Supporting Students Living with Adversity (Quick Reference Guide)
In this quick reference guide, Debbie Zacarian and Lourdes Alvarez-Ortiz outline five keys to supporting students living with trauma, violence, and chronic stress:
- Build asset-based relationships with students.
- Provide students with a voice and choice in their learning.
- Connect the curriculum to students' lives in meaningful ways.
- Provide reassuring classroom routines.
- Collaborate with others.
Research demonstrates the urgent need to use an asset-based rather than a deficit-based approach when teaching students living with adversity. The guide's strategies and examples will help teachers create a strengths-based learning environment where students feel safe, a sense of belonging, valued, and competent.
