The Classroom180 Framework gives you an organizational roadmap to use when developing a trauma-informed classroom. This training focuses around each of the domains with comprehensive explanations of each, reinforced with real-life examples to give you a deep dive into the "how."  
Whether you are in the beginning stages of becoming trauma informed or you have been working for a few years on creating such a platform, this training will expand your knowledge and escalate you to the next level. Becoming trauma-informed is an ever evolving and growing process. This training is designed to move you forward, no matter your starting point.

The ultimate question becomes, "But how do I know if I'm trauma informed?" The Classroom180 Rubric is the answer to this question. This assessment tool allows you to be able to determine where you are on your journey of becoming trauma informed.

This training will teach you how to use the Classroom180 Rubric through classroom simulations, group discussions, and active practicing with this tool.  The hands-on experience with this tool will give you the knowledge to go back to your school to conduct classroom observations to collaboratively support other teachers in their growth continuum.

As a bonus for registering for this training, you will be given FREE access to the digital version of the Classroom180 Rubric. This online assessment tool will help you to streamline this process and give you the upper edge in using this rubric!
