We often think about learning only in terms of instruction that is missed, and how that affects academic skills. But there is so much more that happens during a school day to help students become independent, resilient, and self-regulated learners. Social-emotional learning is critical, especially during these stressful times.
Tune in to Lee Pesky Learning Center and The Community Library’s three-part series about learning challenges, the opportunity gap and how we can use evidence-based practices and partnerships to meet the needs of all students.
During session three, Dr. Evelyn Johnson, CEO of Lee Pesky Learning Center, and moderator Martha Williams, Program and Education Manager of The Community Library, will examine the data and predictions for the impact of school closures on classrooms, discuss what classrooms will need, and what solutions are available to support.
This third session of the three-part series can be accessed via Crowdcast live stream at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 13. The presentation includes a moderated Q&A.
