There has been a concerted effort in many states to provide teaches with the COVID-19 vaccine, and a result, some schools are headed back to full-time, in-person learning. Many students and teachers are looking forward to returning to school, but with that return, there will be a variety of issues for educators to navigate.
We all know that there are millions of students across the country who have been learning virtually from home since last year. As a former special education teacher, I know how difficult it can be to teach students in a traditional classroom setting. Teaching virtually on a long-term basis was something most of us could never imagine!
Learning from home has most likely disrupted your students’ daily routines. From forgetting to log-on for class to tuning in wearing pajamas – I’ve heard the comical stories that virtual learning has brought, along with the challenging ones.
Because the Healthy Relationships Curriculum can be taught in-person, virtually, or in a hybrid-format, our program is not confined by your school’s modality. When you purchase our program, you receive over 100 educational videos, role-playing and demonstrations, 39 ready-to-use lessons, outcome measurement tools, and an online portal that connects you directly to our team to answer questions that might arise. Most importantly, the student activities we’ve designed will keep your students engaged and motivated.
I know you have probably been extremely busy adjusting your master lesson plans and breaking them up into smaller segments. Our program can help you with that because our lesson plans, while exhaustive, are not overwhelming. They are broken down step-by-step, so it is easier for you to understand and implement.
By now, your students are used to learning virtually and watching everything on-screen. That is why our video lesson plans will help to streamline your students’ transition back into the classroom. They are used to learning everything on-screen, so watching our videos in a traditional classroom setting will feel very normal to them.
While our program is specifically designed to support students with varying needs, any student can benefit from our program. Our lesson plans are focused on topics they are interested in, like cyberbullying and sexuality. We strive to address issues that are relevant to their academic and personal lives. Given everything that has transpired over the last year, it’s crucial that your students are in a position to develop critical life and social skills.
I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you, should you have questions about the program. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, and here’s to hope that spring is bringing us!
All my best,
Jen Falkowski, M.Ed.
