The past year was a year of exceptionalities. We all needed to do different things to survive all the constantly changing demands of education. Let’s examine what your learner needed this past year. Welcome to Week 3 of the #8weeksofsummer Blog Challenge 2021.

2021 #8weeksofsummer Week 3 PIN

Our learners had a myriad of stressors that typically do not intrude on learning. The coming school year will undoubtedly launch many new social-emotional learning (SEL) products and programs, but the original and unfunded SEL program for learners was their teacher. What did your learners in particular need from you this year? What were you able to provide and what was out of your reach?

Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the full year of multiple formats. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a future teaching repertoire prepared for multiple formats!

The Prompt:

Describe new or additional supports your learners needed this year.

The Rules:

Have a Blog: You may blog on a traditional blog, podcast, or use Facebook; any platform with an independent URL for each post.
