- Berry Street Educational Model
BSEM is an educational model of curriculum and classroom strategies that aims to strengthen the educational outcomes for all students including those who suffer from the effects of trauma or stress. Berry St provides a positive model of education and encourages students to use a growth mindset in their learning.
The domains within the BSEM are Body, Stamina, Engagement and Character, all underpinned by Relationship. Students are taught strategies which assist them to self-regulate and ground themselves, allowing them to focus on their learning.
Brain-breaks are a fun way of re-engaging, stimulating or calming, and are used to enhance student focus.
