ACEs 201: Why Should I Care About Adverse Childhood Experiences And My Students? What Does It Mean For My Classroom? What Does It Mean For My Community?
March 8, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
ACEs 201 is a deeper dive into ACEs that requires previous attendance at either the DLS talk on the evening of March 7, or the PK Institute we hosted in August, 2018.
Our schools care about students and their futures. Our schools use amazing best practices to improve aspirations, test scores, graduation rates, college going rates, and retention rates, but still we are losing too many of our students. As teachers, guidance counselors, and school administrators we know we need to do better, but how. This session takes a look at ACEs- Adverse Childhood Experiences and the impact of these experiences on school success. What we know from ACEs is that a trauma informed approach is needed in schools and without acknowledging and responding to the impact adversity has on developing brains and on social and emotional development, we will never close the achievement gap.
Please join us to learn how to make a difference with your students and our community.
