The Academic and Emotional Resiliency of High School Students with Interrupted Formal Education:
A Mixed Methods Approach to Examining SIFE with Developing Literacy
Developing Responsive Classroom and School Communities for Students with Interrupted Education: NNER October 2018
Presenters: Dr. Lisa Auslander & Magdalen Beiting
Dr. Lisa Auslander and Maggie Beiting led a discussion asking participants to consider the SIFE experience. Attendees of the talk read direct quotes from students, teachers, and administrators to get a better understanding of the emotional impact this experience has on all those it touches.
Some of the questions attendees considered were:
- How can a student’s life outside of the classroom impact his/her learning in the classroom?
- What are some potential setbacks SIFE might bring with them into their context?
- What are ways we can provide access to SIFE in our classrooms and schools to create a more democratic, safe learning environment?
