Anxiety and stress are major factors in the lives of both school professionals and students. The purpose of this course is to enhance student performance by minimizing the negative effects of stress in the classroom. Participants learn a working definition of stress and anxiety, study research findings on the cause of stress, learn reasons explaining its impact upon teaching and learning, and conduct a thorough assessment of stress factors in their classrooms. This knowledge facilitates application of tools and techniques to identify, prevent, and manage stressors to improve academic success. Participants will also identify specific students experiencing debilitating stress and take actions to address these problems and help the student restore personal equilibrium and enhance their performance. This course is appropriate for all K-12 teachers and school professionals.
