Lost at School: Book Application

1 - 2 Credits
Instructor: Linda Jacobsen
$180 - $320
Lost at School: Book Study, based on the book, Lost at School, Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges Are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them challenges educators to reconsider the nature of struggling students and how we can help them build the skills they need to be successful learners. Most educators encounter students that seem to defy the norms of the classroom and are frustrated that standard discipline methods have limited success or have made the situation worse. The author, Ross W. Greene, Ph.D., makes a strong case that many students act out because they lack basic behavioral skills and become frustrated. Through observation, educators can pinpoint the specific skill(s) a student needs and provide a method to work collaboratively with the student to help them learn social emotional learning (SEL) strategies to become more successful. This course can be taken for either one or two units and does not require access to students.

Note: Required book must be acquired separately.

This course is applicable towards the Social Emotional Learning Certificate.

I feel so blessed to have had a job that I totally loved to do each and every day. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching elementary aged students for the past 38 years. I liked not only working with the children, but their families as well. I have made many lifelong connections with many of them. As a teacher, it is such a rewarding feeling to see my students “light come on” and see them understand the objective of the lesson. I was also very fond of working with other teachers and administrators and helping them understand and learn about technology. I always liked integrating technology into my lessons and helping others do the same. This really makes lessons come to life. All my FPU courses are very helpful for teachers to learn how to integrate technology into their classroom lessons. Working with my FPU students is great because they really want to learn and use what they have learned to make their classroom lessons so much better and more meaningful for their students.
