This page contains PEAR resources and strategies for families, students, and educators as we work together to support our community through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The PEAR Team is dedicated to continuing to support you and your work as we all adapt to the new virtual way of life necessary to keep our community safe and resilient. We will continue to develop resources and will update this page throughout the weeks ahead.
WORKSHOP SERIES: SURVIVING AND THRIVING IN EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS
PEAR is offering nine professional development workshops in three key areas for schools and afterschool programs as they prepare to support the learning, social-emotional, and mental health needs of youth during the 2020-21 academic year. This work is designed to help educators create an optimistic and hopeful vision for students, classrooms, and communities and give educators the building blocks needed to survive and thrive during this uncertain time.
This resource page includes Playworks' "Play at Home Playbook," videos of games you can play at home with no equipment, and a link to their daily #PlayatHome recess hosted on Facebook live at 11am and 3pm (CT)
