To best support students at the outset of the new school year, this module offers teachers, counselors, and administrators a framework and practical strategies to address challenges and foster resilience in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Out-of-school factors profoundly affect learning, and the COVID-19 crisis has only intensified the need to address these factors. Research findings and on-the-ground experience reveal that to most effectively address these needs in the long-term and to facilitate learning over time, school staff can better understand how adverse student experiences impact student engagement and how their impact can be mitigated. This module offers teachers, counselors, and administrators in K-12 schools a framework and practical strategies for addressing students’ holistic strengths and needs as a new academic year begins.
At the end of this module educators will;
- Develop a framework for assessing and systematically addressing students’ non-academic strengths and needs at the outset of the school year,
- Describe the range of responses to traumatic events such as COVID-19, and
- Understand how to foster resilience at the individual, classroom, and whole-school levels.
