Cohesive Classroom Communities (1 Iowa LRC - Non-member)

A teacher’s role can be summarized as ‘the provider of learning.’ This course helps teachers recognize key warning signs and navigate mental health issues to build safe classroom environments and encourage optimal learning.

The first section, Classroom Collaboration, is designed to educate teachers about collaborative instruction, involving joint intellectual effort by students, and teachers together. Strategies, examples, and printable templates are included to help teachers implement improved practices in their own classrooms. 

Taking this forward, the second section focuses on Mental Health, helping teachers understand mental illness, and accommodate students who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses, in their classrooms. This section also provides the key warning signs of early-onset mental illnesses in children and adolescents, the potential connection to substance use, knowledge of steps to be taken if such warning signs are observed; as well as information about specific conditions like ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Depression, and Bipolar Disorder. To equip teachers for adverse circumstances, the third section titled, ‘Suicide Prevention’, focuses on the role teachers can play in preventing suicide. The creative techniques presented in this course can be used to build strong, understanding, empathetic and caring students. The warning signs of suicide will help teachers recognize students who may be at risk for suicide.

  • I really liked the piece of this course where it gave examples on how to talk with our students during these traumatic instances such as suicide and/ or death/attempted. As had as these situations and emotions are for our students, they are equally just as hard for educators. Therefore, I feel better informed on ways to deal with and help my students if need be during situations such as suicide! I highly recommend this course and will definitely share this with my co-workers and administration! Thank you!

  • I greatly appreciate you allowing me to change courses (twice) when I realized I was enrolled in a course that would not meet my professional needs. I am a school counselor and the school 504 coordinator. Thank you also for your quick responses to any questions I had or changes I needed to make.
