News Around the Nation

 

Edutopia

For years I’ve been coaching educators that the single most effective thing they can do to establish an environment for learning is to maintain a positive tone and build relationships with students — not to minimize challenges but to emphasize the bright spots that draw kids into learning and make them want to stick with it.

COVID-19 disruptions have had a distinct, devastating and potentially enduring impact on our youngest school-aged learners, especially those who were already behind in early language, literacy and numeracy understandings. The pandemic has also taken a toll on children’s social and emotional health. Guided play — play that is guided by teachers at school — can be an important part of children’s learning. 

 

Pikes Peak Courier

It’s OK to take a break — to need a break — even if (and perhaps especially if) you’re a kid in today’s world. Now that in-person learning is back, for most children, we can’t assume that everything is hunky-dory for these kids. Many had more than a year of remote learning, a year that brought with it (forced) isolation and introspection.

New post-COVID-19 “return-to-play” guidelines for youth, college and professional athletes include cardiac screenings — screenings some sports medicine experts recommend for many COVID-19 patients who do vigorous exercise. 

 

Teachers College Columbia University

As K-12 schools re-open in another year of challenges and uncertainty, policy discussions on masking, social distancing and more make it more clear than ever: Education and health are inherently intertwined. Schools must now contemplate their path forward in a world perhaps forever changed by COVID.
