This session will be like the hug you really need right now. We’re going to breathe and take stock of the past year. We’ll look at how social and technological stressors have put our nervous systems under undue pressure. We’ll look the impact of that on both us as teachers and our students. We’ll revisit the self-care plans we made last year, and make a new plan together for the ongoing situation.
Join Donatella as she will show how reading and stories can help improve students' wellbeing and at the same time help fill the gap of lost learning as a result of the pandemic. Donatella will share practical ideas and activities to use at home or in class; whether during face to face, hybrid, or online lessons. This session will be relevant for teachers of students of all ages. Donatella will use examples from the Pearson English Graded Readers and the new Disney Kids Readers.
