Ready, Set, RISE! offers educators a series of free, on-demand e-learning modules built to highlight the importance of human connection and empathy in schools. The series provides educators with a foundational understanding of trauma-informed educational practices and policies they can use to create more student-centered learning environments for all learners. This new, no-cost digital content that supports educator and student emotional resiliency comes from a partnership between Kaiser Permanente, Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and Discovery Education.
Overall, the Ready, Set, RISE! series covers core social and emotional learning concepts, as well as logistical and administrative concerns regarding planning, implementing, and sustaining trauma-informed practices in schools. The first module focuses on educator self-care in any teaching environment, while the second module offers educators new strategies for helping students neutralize the effects of adversity, societal oppression, and implicit bias. Additional modules, coming in early 2021, will address how to recognize and respond to signs of trauma in schools and explore the science of implementation.
