How can we help young people prepare, adjust, and adapt in a changing world? How can we as educators, parents, and caregivers become resilient, hopeful, and adaptive? How do we reconsider the typical ways we work, teach, and parent to ensure that we are building communities that confront inequities and engage every learner?
In this episode, we will tackle these questions with Harvard’s Sarah Dryden-Peterson Ed.D.’09, a scholar whose work with refugee and migrant communities offers compelling global lessons in navigating change and confronting inequalities, and Ana Tavares Ed.M.’99, a Boston Public Schools elementary school superintendent whose work focuses on increasing the learning of students of color in a bilingual setting, and partnering with teachers and families to provide access to high-quality public education for all students.
Education Now is a new initiative by the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) to respond to the dramatic changes in the field of education today. One aspect of that initiative is a new web series of crucial conversations about teaching, learning, leading, and living in the time of coronavirus, hosted by Richard Weissbourd, co-director of HGSE's Human Development and Psychology program and director of HGSE’s Making Caring Common project. Episodes will broadcast live on Zoom and will be available on Facebook and YouTube.
