In a recent report from the Department of Education documenting the effects of COVID-19 on American students, it was noted that “nearly all students have experienced some challenges to their mental health and well-being during the pandemic.” School staff and students are dealing with higher levels of stress and entire districts are recognizing feelings of helplessness among students and teachers. Many educators are searching for innovative social-emotional learning (SEL) strategies that strengthen their classroom communities throughout the entire school year.
Ward Eames is the founder of The National Theatre for Children and Livestream Learning Studio, two organizations dedicated to educating K-12 students through arts-enhanced programming. Watch this edWebinar to hear from Ward on how to engage students emotionally all year long, strengthening their core social and emotional competencies through innovative classroom programming.
This edWebinar offers solutions that help educators:
- Engage students through techniques that support SEL
- Use storytelling in a variety of forms to enhance the learning experience
- Strengthen their classroom communities through relationship-building lessons and activities
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, counselors, and curriculum coordinators of the elementary grades.
