Anxiety is more prevalent than ever before, given living in a pandemic. Students show signs of anxiety in all different ways – some easier and others harder to distinguish given the confines of virtual learning and the new “normals” of in-person learning in masks, at a distance. Come hear some anxiety basics, think about what anxious behaviors look like this year online and in person, and find some strategies to help address what our students are going through.
This course is appropriate for educators at all grade levels.
