What Adolescents Are Teaching Us Post-Pandemic and Why We Should Listen
The latest post from the Learning Policy Institute’s Transforming School series is authored by Linked Learning Alliance President and CEO Anne Stanton. Her guest post, Thriving, Learning, and Leading: What Adolescents Are Teaching Us Post-Pandemic and Why We Should Listen, emphasizes that while some of the hardships of the pandemic have begun to subside, students—particularly adolescents—are still reeling from its traumas during an extremely formative time in their lives. Among those who weathered the pandemic better than most were students and educators in schools using the Linked Learning approach. These students are in learning environments that prioritize their well-being and sense of belonging, and are aware of the support surrounding them every step of the way as they progress academically, socially, and emotionally.
The Transforming Schools series aims to share effective practices and foundational research for educators, students, families, and policymakers who are reimagining schools as places where students are safe and can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
