A Summer On, Not Summer Off: Using the Summer to Prevent Learning Loss for K–12 Students: Webinar

Summer is upon us…WHEW! Recent events have emphasized the need for K–12 students to continue to develop and grow year-round. But the reality is, many students and their families do not have the resources to combat summer melt and the HYPER MELT that has come with COVID learning loss. This timely conversation facilitated by thought leaders Adam A. Smith and Heather C. Lou elevates the voices of K–12 educators and administrators centering on real strategies for educators, parents, and providers to combat melt in all of its forms so that students have a running start into fall 2022.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

  • How to provide educators and administrators with tools that can be given to families and communities to carry educational development throughout the summer.
  • Proven strategies, technologies, and opportunities to prevent summer learning loss (melt), especially for families who may lack the resources to acquire and implement them for themselves.
  • The impact of trauma and arrested development on student learning and well-being, and strategies to meet students “where they are” from a growth mindset.
