As school communities across the country begin what is an unprecedented year for education, it is critical that we start by reconnecting in a way that builds a strong foundation for the year ahead. All of us have felt the stress of the last several months and perhaps even anxiety from the uncertainty of what lies ahead in this school year.
For this reason, the Pegasus Springs Education Collective and Spark & Stitch Institute have partnered to offer a free, virtual opportunity for educators. This series of 5 brief modules (only 30 minutes each) focus on how our brains learn, how stress and trauma impact our brains, and how we can collaborate to create healing-centered spaces for learning.
These introductory modules are designed for educators to come together and simply begin the conversation. It is our hope that the sessions will inspire ideas for restorative practices throughout the year and also spark new ideas for supporting each other and your students.
Module 1: Our Brain and Learning
Module 2 – Obstacles to Learning
