Traumatic events occur all too frequently - natural disasters, lethal school violence, wildfires, industrial accidents, as well as incidents of domestic violence and chronic abuse. Teachers in schools where students have experienced trauma face particularly difficult challenges, for how is a teacher to promote academic growth and attainment of educational goals in such a situation? Teaching in the Aftermath offers wisdom born of experience as well as insights acquired through years of study. Authors contributing to this text provide advice, understanding, and proven strategies for meeting the challenges that must be faced after a traumatic experience interrupts the lives of students.
