(Webinar Recording) Bridging Two Worlds: Practical Strategies to Support Educators Working to Meet the Needs of Newcomer Students

Educators face the difficult task of meeting the needs of diverse classrooms. This is further exacerbated by children that have been affected by war who bring with them a unique set of needs requiring additional support. This free webinar draws from a qualitative CERIC-supported research program conducted in three Canadian provinces that examines best practices and programs supporting the integration of refugee and newcomer students. This research, along with recommendations for teachers, counsellors and administrators, has recently been published in the guide, Bridging Two Worlds: Supporting Newcomer and Refugee Youth. Research revealed that further education in areas such as conflict awareness, understanding refugee characteristics, self-care and relationship building with students, families and communities, is needed among school staff. Educators are able to build capacity in their students by meeting psychosocial along with growth needs while also guiding students toward successful personal and professional goals for the future. Practical recommendations to support adjustment, career development and well-being among students through the creation of culturally responsive classrooms will be shared. View
