After having been home for months, students will return to school with a range of new emotional needs. Some will have had a fairly smooth ride with parents available to help and not too stressed. Others may have lost family members or experienced abuse because of the additional stresses caused by isolation. As a result, it’s vital to strategize your school reopening plan as it pertains to social emotional learning
Students can only learn if they feel safe. Meeting the range of social emotional needs — and providing a sense of safety — has to be the foundation for students to succeed academically. With budget constraints and high demands on the building counselor, the social emotional program you choose must provide flexible options. It must be able to reach to every student, regardless of whether they’re distance learning, in-school learning or in some sort of hybrid model.
This webinar will focus on the social emotional needs of students and strategies for teachers to use in the classroom. It will also outline what your social emotional learning program needs to have the capacity to do. Ideally, each building should have a teacher, counselor and administrator attend this webinar so all three perspectives are present in fall plan creation.
