Dr. Lisa H. Stewart, MSUM School Psychology/Psychology co-presented with Literacy Lab Coach and Trainer Kimberly Parker at the national (virtual) Teachstone Interact Now 2021 CLASS Summit on March 25, 2021. Their presentation was titled: ” Building Back by Reframing COVID “Learning Loss”. The focus of the presentation was on thinking about the term “learning loss” in the media and conversations and focusing on a more strengths-based approach for our schools and preschools moving forward. Our kids, families and teachers/staff have all learned a LOT in this past year and have experiences and new skills we can build on. Specific strategies and ways to use data collection methods to plan for building back and guide instructional and environmental planning were discussed and practiced.
