Thinking about the current situation we’re in (Covid-19, many schools still closed, etc.), how does this impact the interactions children are experiencing (either positively or negatively) with other children, and with adults?
What do you imagine teachers will be doing in the new school year to build on this, or counteract this?
Which of the tools from books, (“How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen” by Joanna Faber and Julie King, and “Powerful Interactions: How to Connect with Children to Extend Their Learning” by Amy Laura Dombro, Judy Jablon, and Charlotte Stetson) will be most useful?
How can teachers employ these strategies when interacting with children who have spent over one year of their young lives in this situation?
There are many ways to answer this question. Think about regard to brain development, sensory integration, and parenting/teaching styles as you address this question. Refer to the strategies from textbooks (motioned above). Perhaps you’re currently working in the classroom and are already employing some of the strategies as you help children adapt to being back at school.
