Finding a balance between school, work, and a social life can be hard for teachers, and it can be especially hard for students. Right now, our nation is in the throes of a public health crisis. Over 400,000 Americans have lost their lives to COVID-19 and as many public health experts have warned us about, we are at the beginning of a dark winter.
Students are having to balance their schoolwork, possibly having a job, and trying to navigate a social life that is probably non-existent. Suffice to say, students are facing a lot of distractions and many might even be struggling with anxiety and depression. What we are all experiencing is very difficult and hard for adults to cope with, let alone students who have varying needs. The constant news cycle and apprehension we all have to do just the ordinary tasks of life—like grocery shopping—will make anyone lose focus and forget what their priorities are.
Due to the pandemic, many schools have stopped in-person instruction. If schools are providing in-person instruction, they are likely doing it through a hybrid model with students only attending a few days a week. A traditional academic environment has somewhat disappeared, and virtual learning has become our new normal. Some students love school and learning, others despise it. So, having a well-rounded and highly adaptable program, like our Healthy Relationships Curriculum is crucial.
With all of the distractions your students are facing, they need to learn how and why prioritizing their schoolwork is important. Our program provides educators and special education teachers with the tools and resources they need to ensure their students understand what steps they must take to prioritize their schoolwork.
As you probably know, students with varying needs must understand each assignment completely and fully before they can even being to work on it. Sometimes it helps it they rank each task by importance and deadline, as well as give themselves ample time to complete the assignments. Students with varying needs require extra support and need things clearly explained to them step-by-step. That’s why our Healthy Relationships Curriculum not only teaches students how to prioritize their schoolwork, but it provides both them and educators with clear and concrete instructions
