Helping children who are grieving during the school day is an issue we address in our recent newsletter and we provide some teacher resources.
The National Association of School Psychologists provides a resource for teachers titled, FOSTER CARE FOR CHILDREN: INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS By Nancy McKellar, PhD Wichita State University. It’s not overwhelmingly long yet addresses issues of separation and loss, dealing with change and transitions and tips for supporting foster children in school.
From NPR Ed, Grief In The Classroom: “Saying Nothing Says A Lot” is an article that highlights the often unspoken issue of grieving students and references GrievingStudents.org, a website with resources for schools to support grieving students.
GrievingStudents.org, includes fact sheets, advice and videos. The materials were produced by the Coalition to Support Grieving Students, a group including 10 national organizations that represent teachers, school administrators and support staff.
