ANN ARBOR - Concordia University Ann Arbor's Summer Institute Workshops aim to reach out to local educators across a variety of topics.

Now in its fourth year, the School of Education will be holding workshops on campus from July 30 through Aug. 10. The Michigan Department of Education has approved all of the workshops.

One and two-day workshops will be available, and teachers can earn up to six state continuing education clock hours (SCECHs) per day.

Among the featured topics during this year's event are trauma in the classroom, reaching and teaching your toughest student and restorative practices.

"Through the Summer Institute Workshops, CUAA’s Graduate School of Education is able to reach out to the community and serve the specific needs and interests of the area districts," Marilyn Meell, director of graduate education program, said in a press release.
