Many resources have been developed for use by educators in supporting children during crisis.  They promote strategies to build both communications skills and student connectivity in difficult times.   This site offers a range of resources to assist educators in implementing these strategies.  They are organized in multiple categories, including by grade level, student age and by duration.  Some offer a year-long approach to building trusting and safe learning environments for students.  As you design learning opportunities for your students, review these materials to select those that are most relevant to the needs of your students.  You will find some of these resources more helpful to your specific objectives than others that are on the list.  This list is a start; additional listings will be added in the future so you are encouraged to visit this page on a regular basis.
