I want to address a collective grief we all share in navigating this year with COVID. Linked here is a copy of the most recent installment in a series I’ve worked on called Back to A Future to probe the intensifying depths of grieving. Acknowledge the mounting vulnerability to the rampaging virus:
- Print the page (letter or poster-sized)
- Share the link
- Encourage your faculty and staff to talk about grief
- Suggest sheltered time in classrooms for kids to process it
- Forward it to parents for home discussion
Use Back to A Future as a tool to help define what COVID is doing to our psyche and actions. Process through the questions to get a grip on how best to begin to respond to one another about what continues to confront and perplex us all.
