2020 WEBINAR:

"WHEN THE KIDS COME BACK"

Helping schools prepare for the return of students

*Recording and notes available HERE!

 

This webinar is designed to help educators (administrators, classroom teachers, psychological staff, and others) prepare for the return of students after a prolonged absence due to this pandemic. 

 

Several important issues will face schools and teachers: 

  • academically, students will almost certainly be behind where they would have been had they been attending school; 

  • It is likely that students will be in different places academically, as families with different resources will have completed different levels of work at home;

  • many students may have been spending much more screen time than they were prior to the pandemic;

  • some students will be coming back to school with emotional difficulties, possibly including trauma and the death of family members; 

  • the families of some students may be under significant financial stress;  

  • students may be returning with physical challenges from a reduction in exercise, sleep interruptions, and interruption of regular meals; and

  • finally, children may have experienced social stress during the pandemic, including cyberbullying and bias against Asian Americans.

 

This webinar is not designed to directly address academic planning specifically, but will help educators plan for the social and emotional consequences, both in their students and in themselves as we cope with the reestablishment of traditional schooling. How these factors intersect with academic progress will be discussed.  Different roles (e.g., classroom teacher versus administrator) and children of different ages will be discussed.  We will discuss how to prepare faculty and staff; how to recognize signs that children need extra help; how to be stress and trauma sensitive; how to reestablish classroom routines; and how to empower students as part of their recovery.  Concrete planning will be emphasized.
