Join Facing History and Ourselves and Share My Lesson for a webinar on students' social-emotional needs in the new normal. What does it mean to go back to school this year—after a season of disrupted learning, a summer of historic protests and unrest, and in the midst of an ongoing pandemic?

Effective teaching in these times demands that educators prioritize the social emotional needs of their students and build strong relationships, regardless of whether school starts in person, remotely or somewhere in between. Before students can focus on what they are being asked to learn and do in the classroom, they must feel safe, connected and emotionally secure.

On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.

Original Air Date:  July 23, 2020

Professional Credit

Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

The whole webinar is important, and I think every teacher needs to take this. She gave valuable information that we could use without racking our brains for the upcoming year. This is extremely helpful! AFT sharemylesson, Thank you for offering this.
