This is an unprecedented moment for kids, teachers, families, and schools. Re-opening our schools will involve decisions based on incomplete information that must be made in an environment that, at best, would be described as uncertain.
The Playworks School Reopening Workbook is a free resource and workbook aiming to bring a bit of ease to this transition.
This book offers guidance around how infusing play and playfulness into the process can help, and gives you practical tools to try it on.
The workbook is divided into five sections
In each of the first four sections we offer ideas, suggestions, and concrete activities to help you frame the approach your school takes to incorporating the guidance that is being offered by the CDC and your local health authorities.
We also want to invite you to contribute meaningfully to our understanding of what works and what doesn’t. Our commitment in this moment is to learn and to share what we learn.
Based upon the stories that we hear about things educators actually try, both successfully and not, along with the lessons learned from the real experiences of re-opening (and then possibly re-closing and re-re-opening), we will compile a more comprehensive response to the moment to be published by Jossey-Bass in the Summer of 2021.
If you are open to being a part of this effort we would be extremely grateful.
