Limited Capacity filling up

Participants will learn the history/situation of students from refugee and trauma backgrounds and gain practical tools for supporting them and helping them in the classroom, whether in a designated ELL classroom or integrated into the mainstream classes. From behaviour challenges, to cultural differences to learning challenges resulting from gaps in formal schooling, insights and learning from the past 13 years will be shared with guests. Our classroom has had students from a wide variety of cultures and refugee backgrounds and we've learned some things along the way to pass on to teachers, who are wondering the best way to support the student from trauma and/or refugee background, in their classroom. Participants will also leave with a list of resources, tools, teaching ideas and websites that they can use in the classroom tomorrow.

Target Audience: K-12
