Teaching to Strengths : Supporting Students Living with Trauma, Violence, and Chronic Stress
by Debbie Zacarian and Lourdes Alvarez-Ortiz and Judie Haynes




Overview -

Half the students in U.S. schools are experiencing or have experienced trauma, violence, or chronic stress. Much has been written about these students from a therapeutic perspective, especially regarding how to provide them with adequate counseling supports and services. Conversely, little has been written about teaching this population and doing so from a strengths-based perspective.

Using real-world examples as well as research-based principles, this book shows how to

  • Identify inherent assets that students bring to the classroom.
  • Connect to students' experiences through instructional planning and delivery.
  • Foster students' strengths through the use of predictable routines and structured paired and small-group learning experiences.
  • Develop family and community partnerships.

Experts Debbie Zacarian, Lourdes Alvarez-Ortiz, and Judie Haynes outline a comprehensive, collaborative approach to teaching that focuses on students' strengths and resiliency. Teaching to Strengths encourages educators to embrace teaching and schoolwide practices that support and enhance the academic and socio-emotional development of students living with trauma, violence, and chronic stress.
