Class Experience

Students will learn to normalize and recognize anxiety. Students will learn different parts of the brain and their functions. Students will learn 3 simple tips to calm down anxiety (Breathing deep, progressive muscle relaxation , and telling our brains the true information). 
I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor/elementary school social worker. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker license, along with a School Social Worker License. I have been teaching children about mental health, mindfulness, coping tools, and emotions for four years. I love helping kids feel empowered to learn ways to manage their emotions!
There is no homework for this class, however, I encourage the students to recognize when they feel anxious, and practice the tips that they learn to calm down anxiety. 
A one-page hand out will be given to the children to help them remember what they have learned.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be showing an image of the brain with different parts (Amygdala, Hippocampus, and Pre-Frontal Cortex) highlighted
