Supporting the Social and Emotional Needs of Your Students

  • Make a Connection. Schedule regular, 1:1 meetings with your students. Plan specific academic topics for discussion and ask the students about their non-academic interests. For younger students, touch base with the Learning Coach (adult) as well to see how they are doing with academic support and share best practices for teaching.
  • Create a Support Network. Establish a location for students to safely share ideas and ask questions about their courses. Virtual discussion boards can be created to allow students share study tips, wish classmates a happy birthday, ask academic questions and share tips and tricks.
  • Focus Groups. Organize focus groups for students to meet regularly to discuss common interests. Student clubs can discuss video game strategy, coding, sports or art techniques. Share club “sponsoring” with other teachers who may share interests with the group. Older students can benefit from career-focused groups led by professionals in the community. Even if you are limited to virtual interactions, your options are endless!
  • Class Meetings. Make time to gather as a group and discuss current events in an age-appropriate way. Engage parents by planning your topic in advance and sharing it with them.
  • Foster Empathy. Create projects that encourage students to help others in their home or community. They can read with a younger sibling, help cook dinner, walk the dog, send cards to those in the hospital, make videos to share their expertise on virtual learning and so much more!
  • Skill Development. Send your students weekly study skill advice and digital learning tips to help them find success during the school year.
