Rooted Relationships: Growing Equitable Classroom Communities brings together the most helpful and practical tools from the latest brain science research, culturally responsive teaching, trauma and attachment theory, and social emotional learning.
You can help children with the social-emotional support and skill-building that they urgently need. You’ll gain resources and learn tools that will make an immediate difference in your classroom and school, including the BELONG Partners Pacing Guide.
The 250+ page Pacing Guide is an essential resource to support implementation of the BELONG Partners approach. It includes:
A calendar that outlines a month-by-month focus on various SEL topics, relationship development and adult mindsets
Resources for facilitating systems change and restorative discipline
Activities that foster student skills in effective problem-solving class meetings
During Rooted Relationships you will explore with us how to:
Set-up and consistently hold effective problem-solving class meetings
Understand behavior as communication and how you can respond to challenging behavior
Apply a trauma-responsive lens so that you can better understand and handle classroom challenges
Strengthen your own self-regulation and co-regulation skills
Build an equitable learning community so that everyone knows they belong and their voice matters
