Leveraging Optimism to Benefit STEM Learning
As the pandemic continues and times remain uncertain and constantly changing, educators and students alike are feeling the strain, worry, and fatigue. Now more than ever we need to provide strategies to teachers and out-of-school time professionals so they feel the support they deserve and are empowered to assist the learning and well-being of their students. Join the PEAR team as they explore the natural integration of STEM and social emotional development (SED) and discuss how optimism as an SED skillset is not static but rather can be strengthened to benefit STEM learning environments. The team will provide practical approaches and will also discuss the professional development workshops they are offering 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.
