(check out my BAM! podcast, “How Can We Help Students Handle Loss and Grief?”)
With the new school year upon us, it’s likely that most of us will have at least one student, and probably more, suffer the loss of a family member or friend.
I thought a short “The Best…” list on the topic might be helpful, and I hope that readers will suggest additional resources.
I also have related resources at The Best Resources On Talking With Children About Tragedies.
Here are my choices for The Best Resources For Helping Students Deal With Grief:
I’m going to start with a post I wrote about a year-and-a-half ago titled Helping Students Who Are Grieving. In it, I share what I do, and some personal experiences. Readers contributed suggestions in comments there, too.
Helping Students Deal with the Loss of a Parent comes from Education Week.
How to: Help Your Students Deal with Grief and Loss from The Apple is an article I’ve previously recommended.
Five Tips for Supporting Grieving Students is from Edutopia.
Additional suggestions are welcome.
