New Guide: Planning for Uncertainty: An Educator’s Guide for Navigating the COVID-19 Era & Webinar – Oct 29

Posted by University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education on October 20, 2020

Planning for Uncertainty: An Educator’s Guide for Navigating the COVID-19 Era provides educators with a framework for decision making and action planning amidst so much uncertainty, with a focus on mental health support for both students and educators. The guide includes real-life student and educator scenarios and sample action plans, plus a suite of tools focused on student and educator mental wellness and relationship building.

The team will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, October 29 at 6:00 p.m., at which experts from Penn GSE will join educators working in the field in sharing a framework for moving forward amid the deep uncertainty and inequity of the COVID-19 era. Focused on collaborative decision-making processes, and drawing on real-world situations, they will demonstrate how educators can make comprehensive action plans that attend to the wellness needs of themselves and their students.
