Students rely on educators to provide many kinds of support, including stable relationships and positive social support - and they need those supports now more than ever. With students at home, how can educators continue to provide social and emotional support? Join us to talk with experts on social and emotional learning (SEL) and trauma-sensitive teaching about how you can stay connected with your students and help them navigate these stressful times.
Participants will learn: Why social and emotional supports are more important for students than ever; Keys to resilience; Strategies for connecting with students and promoting their well-being during distance learning; and Issues and considerations for supporting students during a time of crisis.
