The Managing Stress To Improve Learning project of the New England Literacy Resource Center at World Education worked with practitioners in adult basic education programs from 2010 to 2012 to provide learners with resources and activities to reduce stress and improve learning so that they could reach their goals. Using trauma research and theory, mind/body research, expressive arts activities, and community resources connections, practitioners from four New England states worked together with World Education staff and consultants to create curriculum and adapt program and classroom norms to promote resilience, emotional literacy, and stress-management. The findings, tools, and resources on the project page are still relevant for today’s learners, instructors, and programs.
