Support for Teachers During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Facing History and Ourselves, a nonprofit that helps teachers and students examine racism, anti-Semitism, and prejudice at pivotal moments in history, offers a collection of resources designed to support remote learning, community connections, and conversation during the COVID-19 crisis. Support for Teachers During the COVID-19 Outbreak includes on-demand webinars on topics such as remote teaching strategies, approaches to creating community, and sustaining student-centered learning in a digital environment, as well as media literacy resources, strategies for supporting students' social-emotional well-being, and resources designed to help teachers and students go deeper into questions of community, responsibility, and the common good. Reading material and other resources include packets designed to help teachers develop an effective approach to online learning, with a focus on creating engaging, meaningful learning experiences, sustaining community, and supporting their students; videos and articles designed to be shared and discussed with other members of the family; and guides for supporting virtual student book clubs.
