Helping Children Regulate Emotions During Challenging Times
During these unprecedented times, our students and our own children are experiencing a range of unpleasant emotions, including anxiety, frustration and boredom. As the adults in their lives, it’s crucial that we make space for our children’s feelings and support them in managing those feelings. In this webinar, Marc Brackett, author of Permission to Feel, and director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, will share a four-step process to help adults be emotionally intelligent role models for children and teach them key strategies that support healthy self-regulation. Register now andwatch his recent webinar on demand.

Summer learning loss is not a new issue, but this year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, educators and parents alike are concerned about how we can continue to prevent learning loss. This year, school closures amid the pandemic threaten to slow students’ academic progress even more. During this webinar, the presenters will share actionable strategies and resources to address summer learning loss.
ACT and the American Federation of Teachers want to help teachers, parents and students navigate learning during the COVID-19 crisis. Are you familiar with the “summer slide” when students tend to lose academic ground? With many states canceling in-school instruction for the rest of the academic year, how do we combat a “COVID-19 learning slide” while keeping the social and emotional health of our youth front and center?
The challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic are many. Although distance learning has quickly become the default solution for the more than 54 million students displaced by school closures, it is estimated that 25-50 percent of the 5 million English language learners around the country either do not have the appropriate technology devices needed for online learning or access to the internet. Join us to learn more about some best practices we are seeing thus far for both groups of ELLs—those with Internet access and those without.
Are you “distance teaching,” trying to stay connected with your students during this crisis? Even the most tech-savvy among us could use some support during this stressful time, so the AFT is bringing together some of our local experts to help. During this webinar for AFT members, you will hear from fellow educators as they do some quick demos of digital tools like Flipgrid and Screencastify that can help you connect with your students in a meaningful way.
Even though students and teachers are working from home, students may still earn industry-based certifications in their career and technical education (CTE) classes. All it takes is a little creativity, collaboration, and setup.
