What Now? Research and Recommendations on Actionable Teacher Practices for COVID Recovery

Join us for an update on the latest research about the toll the pandemic has taken on students and schools, and an interactive discussion about what teachers can do right now to begin the process of recovery and rebuilding. We’ll explore the following questions:

  • How will we address up to 14 months of student learning loss?
  • How do we care for students who are at risk or are in distress?
  • How can we begin to remediate the disproportionately negative impact COVID has had on students in underserved communities?
