How do we Address Recent Events?!

In light of the recent events happening in Charlottesville, Virginia, we must be equipped to have critical conversations with our students and our colleagues. Social media has opened the door for information to be spread quickly, and it has given our students and fellow educators access to emotionally charged events such as what is happening in Charlottesville. Not only does social media give us a look into events such as these, but it provides a space for people to respond to these events. Students often need support during times like this. Many will experience fear, anger, sadness, isolation, or a slew of other emotions that can stem from such an event. Therefore, we must be prepared to have discussions with our children, as well as with members of our faculty and staff to help each other process the situation and the emotions that come with it.

Check out the links below for a few different resources you can use to start the conversation!
