When your student has an emotional outburst, what is really going on in his brain? What teacher responses could fuel the fire, and what can help your student think logically? In Siegel and Bryson's The Whole-Brain Child, you will learn how the left and right sides of the brain develop and integrate in healthy and unhealthy ways. The authors teach 12 strategies in helping children from birth to preteens make connections between the logical left and emotional right sides of their brains by reprogramming their brains to react in healthy ways. This book study can help you change your perspective from seeing disruptive behaviors as opportunities rather than interruptions to nurture students through fears and encourage engagement in the classroom. Although written for parents, The Whole-Brain Child applies to teachers and those who want to see students succeed socially, emotionally, and academically in a social emotional learning (SEL) environment. This course can be taken for either one or two units, and you can complete the course either with a class of students or without a class.

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.
