Strategies for Your Classroom This practical, strategy-filled book shows educators how to reach and teach students exposed to trauma, such as abuse, neglect, or community violence, that creates tough obstacles to academic achievement and social success. A distressingly large number of young children grow up in family and neighborhood environments filled with violence, and whether they are victims or just witnesses, their lives are forever affected by the trauma. In school and childcare settings, these children often behave aggressively and antisocially, disrupting their own education and development as well as that of their classmates, and they place extra demands on their teachers. This timely book enables teachers and childcare providers to understand and apply the most current neurological and psychological knowledge about how violence affects children, in their learning and interactions with others.
