Grossmont College Childhood Trauma and its Effects Questions
Step 1: Watch
!Please watch the two videos below. As you watch, try to connect the information provided with our class discussion on education and your own experiences. It might help you to take notes as you watch. Step 2: Respond!
Then, answer the following questions in journal form (remember that I am the only one who will be able to see your answers).
- What did you learn from the videos about the relationship between childhood trauma and one’s ability to learn?
- What were your reactions as you watched? Were you surprised? Did you find yourself agreeing or disagreeing?
- Can you connect something from your own childhood that could be considered traumatic and could therefore have become a barrier to your ability to learn? What happened (share only as much as you are comfortable sharing).
There is no minimum word count for these questions, but I ask that you do your best to provide as detailed an answer as you can. Please reply to each question individually.
