Welcome to TRUCE Learning Center!
"Teaching with a growth mindset, one student at a time."
The Real Understanding of Completing an Education
Anger can motivate us to
right wrongs, stand up for ourselves, and change the world. But
unrestrained anger can damage your health, strain your relationships
with family and friends, and blind you to consequences of rage-fueled
words and actions.
The purpose of TRUCE Learning Center is to provide an educational environment for students who violate certain standards of conduct. TRUCE provides a combination of academics and behavioral intervention strategies to meet the needs of at-risk students.

a time-out. If it’s at all possible, back away from stressful
situations before anger overwhelms you. Use the time to regain control
of your emotions: Breathe deeply, relax, and think through the
situation. Is this really worth getting upset over?

member, turn your point of view around. Did she mean to annoy you?

start a war.
your feelings. No one can read your mind, and other people may not
realize how you feel or what you want from them. Explain your point of
view as calmly as you can, using “I” statements: “I got angry when you
__ because __” instead of making an accusation: “You never want to do
things my way!”
