STAGES 2 AND 3: HELPING STUDENTS MANAGE UNCERTAINTY AND ADJUSTMENTS RELATING TO COVID-19



In the past months, Australian students have been affected by drought, bushfires, floods and now a pandemic. Staff have also been affected by these events.

 

The IEU has worked with psychologist Helen Tsamoulous to create a course specifically designed for teachers working with students in Stages 2 and 3.

 

This course will cover:

· Internalising vs externalising: understanding how anxiety presents in years 3-6 students

· Identifying and reframing unhelpful thoughts

· Discussing facts about Covid-19 and drawing links to overcoming other challenges

· Strength based activities to encourage coping and resilience

· Teaching motivation, goal setting and independent learning strategies

· Optimising adaptive behaviour strategies

· Talking about balance, consistency and structure

· Reflecting on positive growth experiences

· Self care for teachers/support staff during times of stress and adjustment

 

Completing Stage 2 and 3: Helping students manage uncertainty and adjustment relating to COVID19 will contribute 2 hours of NESA registered PD addressing 1.1.2, 3.1.2, 4.4.2 and 7.3.2 from the  Australian Professional Standards towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
