Conversations for the Classroom

After you listen to this podcast with your students, consider asking the following questions: 

  • What does wellness mean to you?

  • Moving from I to WE ….. How do we address wellness as we? What issues do we hold together

  • In what ways are we intentionally building relationships within our school/community? 

  • Thoughts on what trauma informed means - what words do you hear the speakers using to describe trauma informed practices in school? 

  • Briana describes power building as healing - how do you feel about that? 

  • Can you think of an example that you have witnessed personally where intentional power building helped healing? Have you ever benefited from this type of experience?

  • What kinds of things would be helpful to you to be able to be your best self in your school environment? How can the school community come together to make these things possible?
