If we've learned anything from this pandemic, it's that we absolutely must pay attention to the well-being of students, staff, and ourselves. As leaders in education, we need to focus on students as people and engage them as people. This has been a traumatic year and it's going to show up in the ways students act and interact come fall. This summer has been referred to as a time for recovery and rebuilding, a time to focus on supporting student and educator well-being to ensure overall academic progress.
Let ASCD help you navigate these times with professional materials for SEL you can use with your staff this summer. Start with the article on Trauma-Informed Teaching Strategies. There are several great articles in the Educational Leadership® issue The Promise of Social Emotional Learning.
To prepare your staff, grab one or more of the Quick Reference Guides or move right into one of our book titles like Jeffrey Benson's Improve Every Lesson Plan with SEL.
