Cultivating Connection, Communic & Joy in the Age of Covid-19 (grades K-8)

As socially distanced teaching or remote teaching (or a hybrid of both) remains our new normal, how can teachers tailor curricula to help students make sense of their emotional responses to the pandemic, develop community with each other, and find joy and meaning in their schoolwork? This workshop outlines how creative writing, games, feedback frameworks, and other techniques can empower students to manage their anxiety and connect with peers (and have a bit more fun at school, to boot). A digital folder of practical resources will be shared with you after each session.
