Great Books for a Tough World 

In this session, participants will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on “book tasting” to discover various titles, from picture books to YA novels, that may be relevant and important to their students dealing with various traumas. Discover new books that are available to you through classroom library sharing and our own DCS media centers; share the books that have reached your own students despite their personal struggles; build your own want-to-read list; and connect with like-minded educators who believe in the power of building empathy and understanding through reading.

Inside Out: Strategies to Help Students Solve Conflict

The purpose of this session is to show educators simple ways we can teach our students to cope with conflict, understand their emotions and deal with them. The audience will represent conflict and solution situations that can occur in the classroom and will need to use one of the strategies to solve the problem. We will design an "it's your choice wheel" for each educator to take to their classrooms and also provide some fun ideas and DIY's on how to make it interactive for students. ( examples from our own classrooms)
