Schools face academic loss challenges every year, and in response to COVID-19 we are seeing an even greater loss and a widening of the achievement gap. So how can we address the loss and build understanding? First, we can start with building empathy, and then as a community, we can embrace the academic challenge.

Led by Peace at Home Parenting experts Amy Alamar, Ed D, and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, this series addresses the important issues faced by educators: How do we build community and approach academics after such a challenging time in education? What have students experienced, what do they need, and how can we begin to capture their attention and engage them in learning? We will introduce practical and effective ways to emphasize emotional safety and equity for in-person and hybrid environments.

  • Recall strategies to build resilience
  • Foster community and nurture relationships
  • Recognize and address grief 
  • Establish/Re-establish routine

Gifted students are more likely to hold a “fixed mindset,” which may hold them back from trying new things or reaching their full potential. They may believe they should only do things at which they are excellent. The way families and educators give feedback can reinforce a frame of mind that supports those limiting beliefs or the confidence to try new experiences. Learn about language you can use to support courage and independence in your gifted student. You will also gain skills in coaching your child back to confidence after a failure.  

After this session, educators and parents will be able to:

  • Give feedback using language that supports youth’s self-esteem
  • Coach youth back to confidence after a failure
