K-12 Teacher Training Webinar – US/MENA Dialogues: “Social and Emotional Supports for Newcomer Students in the United States, Middle East, and North Africa” (virtual)
October 17, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Many communities around the world are experiencing an influx of migrant, immigrant, internally displaced, and/or refugee youth. This interactive webinar will provide approaches for helping students around the world thrive in their new environments. Drawing on lessons learned from the Study of Adolescent Lives after Migration to America (SALaMA), a study examining the well-being and psychosocial support needs of students from the MENA region, this session will share methods for supporting students globally in key areas: (1) school/district-level policies; (2) classroom approaches; (3) connecting to school resources; and (4) linking to families and community partners.
K-12 teachers from the United States and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are invited to join together for two webinars in fall 2021. Organized by the Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies and the University of Arizona’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies, these webinars will provide relevant professional development on shared topics of interest and also provide a platform for teachers to connect across borders. Register for a unique opportunity to receive professional training with your colleagues around the world and engage in international dialogue.
