In case you missed it, you can now watch a recording of Lessons from the Field: Supporting the Social and Emotional Learning Needs of Afghan and Other Newcomer Students, a webinar featuring information on strategies to assist Afghan and other newcomer students as they enter American schools. As part of Operation Allies Welcome, the U.S. Department of Education recognizes the immediate and urgent need to provide high-quality, culturally responsive approaches to support the social and emotional needs of Afghan students in their new learning environments.
The information presented is relevant to other newcomer student populations. A panel discussion with practitioners from the field directly engaged with supporting newcomers is the focus of this webinar. More information along with supplemental resources can be found here.
