This course focuses on 4 key concepts that are directly relevant and applicable to the daily stress levels you experience and observe in the classroom, in the school building and on a playing field. To make connections to our very own students/athletes is paramount, crucial to the course as we delve into practical methods to apply and address stress intermittently and sometimes immediately. By increasing our knowledge of core information about stress and the daily intricacies in which it is embedded, we will have increased vision and be able to “see” where and when we can apply this knowledge to our students and their behaviors. As a result we can decrease stress in their lives, which means less stress for us. Through reading, sharing, research, collaboration and connecting we will connect course work to classroom application. We will build confidence in ourselves and our ability to see, apply and adapt to many student behaviors and classroom situations. This course is meant to increase awareness, realize potential and help connect us with our students. We will better listen to our students’ needs, learn from one another and communicate more effectively as we learn in a fun, safe, environment that promotes less stress. By approaching the class with an open-mind and a willingness to “experiment” and partake in multiple engaging activities, one will be able to transfer these concepts and activities into one’s classroom. Ultimately, one will lower the stress levels of students and the environment as one experience more success and happiness in one’s career.
