The impact of trauma is a silent force felt in every community and every school district. This session provides real-world classroom strategies to make your classroom more trauma-informed. Exposure to traumaâ€“such as violence, racism, or a pandemicâ€“can impact studentsâ€™ readiness to learn. Music provides a unique opportunity for trauma-informed practices. This session will examine 1) the brain science of trauma exposure, 2) school policies and practices through a trauma-informed lens, and 3) the importance of self-care for teachers.
