Whether confronted with the untimely death of a classmate, senseless school shootings, or destructive natural disasters, secondary students often need help understanding, making sense of, and dealing with tragedy. It can be especially difficult for many middle and high school teachers, who may be struggling with their own questions such as: "What is my role," "How much do we share," "What supports do I need to have available to students I see so infrequently or only know so well?" Join Dr. Michelle Anthony as she discusses how educators can best support learners when tragedy strikes. She will provide suggestions and strategies for discussing these difficult topics with children in grades 7-12.
