Earn 1, 2, or 3 graduate-level semester credits with Yoga 4 Classrooms and University of the Pacific, Benerd College. Course participants must first complete the Yoga 4 Classrooms training below in order to register for graduate-level credit:
- Trauma Informed Tools to Support SEL, Student Success and Positive Climate
This course is designed to provide graduate-level professional development credit for educators who spend hours of their own time developing materials and/or implementing educational strategies learned from Yoga 4 Classrooms. As an educator, your Yoga 4 Classrooms experience will undoubtedly inspire you to integrate new mindfulness learnings into your own classroom, school or special program. Now you can finally earn graduate-level credit for the extra time and effort you invested helping students who are easily distracted to focus and learn more efficiently—all by using Yoga 4 Classrooms strategies that are simple and effective. Once you have completed the Trauma Informed Tools to Support SEL program and have spent time integrating it into your lesson plans, simply write a reflection paper describing how you implemented (or plan to implement) the program into your learnings and the professional outcomes of your work. Next, submit it, along with a time log documenting your invested time developing and adapting your learnings for optimum use in your own classroom.
Upon successful completion of your Yoga 4 Classrooms professional development experience, invest time reflecting on your learnings, research and relevant readings. As a student, your practicum requirements will consist of completing a reflection paper to demonstrate the implementation of strategies learned. An additional expectation is to complete a time log that documents the time spent for completing your coursework requirements. The specific requirements concerning your reflection paper and time log are based on how many credits you take per course.
Specifically designed for busy teachers like you, you will get up to 6 months to submit coursework requirements, and extensions are always granted upon request. Opportunities are available across all teaching grade levels, disciplines, and subjects or topics. The overall course objective is aimed at implementing the best practices of education while meeting educational standards set by your school district or state.
*Additional course guidelines, formatting requirements, and information will be provided upon course enrollment.
An Official Transcript with your final course grade(s) is available from Pacific upon successful completion of coursework. The course ending date listed that will appear on your transcript will reflect the date on which your completed coursework was reviewed and graded.
