Feedback form is now closed.
Most teachers encounter students who come from households that experience stress, income instability, household food insecurity, poor social support networks, differing physical abilities, and other related challenges. These students are in every school and every classroom. We will outline how schools can apply an equity approach to better support students and families who face social barriers that can negatively impact health and education outcomes. We will work through various school and classroom examples, such as sports days, potlucks, special events, and curriculum-related projects. We will use a growth mindset to identify strategies and solutions that can minimize adverse impacts on students and their families.
