Title: Using Bibliotherapy to Help Students Heal in These Unprecedented Times

Bibliotherapy is defined as, "a creative arts therapies modality that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing". In these extraordinary times, students need to feel safe, valued, and at peace in our classrooms before any academic learning can take place. Join Sarah Cordova, Director of Literacy Matters, as she shares various texts that can be bridges to help calm and center our students while serving as wonderful examples of how to teach effective writing instruction.
