Brain Basics

Understanding How My Brain Works

As a school seeks to become trauma-responsive it is important that students are included in the process. One of the first steps to this is to teach children about trauma, stress, resilience, and the brain. This curriculum is designed to support you in this effort.

The lessons follow a developmentally appropriate progression based on current neuro-informed science to help educators teach students about how their brains operate. The lessons are short, engaging, and help students work through a toolkit that will help them identify when they are feeling mad, sad, glad, or afraid and strategies for self- and co-regulation.

The Brain Basics Educators Guide is housed on ESSDACK Online, and doubles as a professional learning opportunity for teachers. Through the completion of this online guide you will earn 6 PDC points or have the option to apply for ½ graduate level credit.
