The School Wellness Wheel Workshop

San Francisco, California | May 1–2, 2023
  • Marzano Resources is closely following updates about new or updated COVID-19 guidance from local and state officials related to events and public health. We have proactively taken steps to promote the health and safety of our attendees, associates, and staff.

This presentation will delve deeper into the School Wellness Wheel, which speaks to the future of education by linking three powerful and timely components—mastery-based education, trauma responsive education, and culturally responsive teaching—in a comprehensive system that has the potential to completely transform the focus and impact of the conventional school paradigm.

It is well known that trauma and toxic stress can, over time, damage the brain. In response, a natural question can be asked: Are things we can do to reverse this damage and help heal those same brains? The research clearly indicates that we can.

Schools can help repair and strengthen neurophysiology. The great challenge confronting schools is how to balance the expectation for educational excellence and academic success with a safe and supportive environment that can provide kids with ways to heal their brains and also build their capacity for resilience.

The School Wellness Wheel brings the science of toxic stress and trauma into mainstream school systems to help people learn a host of skills and strategies that could potentially boost synaptic plasticity in the brain—which can, ultimately, facilitate healing, build resilience, and help students engage in deeper, authentic learning.

Session Objectives

  • EXPLORE the critical components of mastery-based schooling.
  • CONSIDER the supporting science and implementation of trauma-competent principles.
  • LEARN how culturally responsive teaching is a vital piece for deep learning.
