  • Resources for Facing Trauma

    The events leading up to the unsettling violence at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, and the continuing developments are truly history in the making. Our students are witnessing what is and is not working well in our nation. Educators are having discussions with their students in all grades about what happened and what might happen next. To assist in having those discussions, answering questions, and reassuring students, we have assembled some articles, teaching tools, and diverse perspectives so that you may better serve your students.

Daily I wondered how I was going to implement effective and engaging learning experiences for my pre-K students over a full virtual learning day. The list of questions that ran rampant, that I spent an entire summer preparing for, felt endless. How would the virtual space replicate a classroom setting? What would I use to model teaching? What normal supplies would I have in my room that I could gather for students? How could I make virtual learning hands-on for pre-K students? Lastly, where would these materials be stored and retrieved by parents?
