Hi everyone, my name is Tess Henkel and I’m a Digital Content Manager at Discovery Education. This week’s events in our nation’s Capital were disturbing and hard to process. We understand how difficult it is for all of us, especially teachers and students, to make sense of everything. As you continue to navigate conversations with your students, we are fully committed to supporting you with relevant and timely digital resources.
On the homepage of Discovery Education Experience, we have curated DE originals and resources from our trusted content corporate and community partners for every grade band. These resources provide timely, balanced news coverage to help students understand current events, help reduce stress and anxiety, promote civil discourse, understand the power of words, learn about the peaceful transfer of power, and encourage tolerance, understanding, and empathy. We’ve also included resources specifically for educators on trauma-informed teaching.
As always, we’re here and committed to helping you. We will continue to update and share additional resources in the days ahead. Stay safe and we’ll see you next week.
