Building Resilience During COVID-19

The resource Building Resilience During COVID-19 is intended to support teachers and students returning to school during a pandemic. The document was created by Tina Newton, from LBPSB to help teachers, educators and other staff members gain new perspectives for how social-emotional needs can be met in the classroom despite social distancing obligations. Parts 01, 02, 04, & 05 have links to valuable resources and activities that can be easily implemented into your daily classroom practices immediately. Please check in from time to time as the list of resources will be ongoing.
