Supporting Social Problem Solving During COVID-19

How can we support young children to solve social problems together when they arise — in-person or at a distance?


Supporting Social Problem Solving

In this webinar, educational coaches Stephanie Adams and Caitlin Powell present strategies we can use to support children to solve social problems in a hybrid or physically distanced classroom environment. This webinar includes a set of resources from the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations (NCPMI).



Webinar Highlights

There are many ways to solve problems with others

Each teacher, child, and family has their own values and practices for solving problems with others.

Teachers can be a support in problem solving

Teachers can intentionally support children to solve problems with others in virtual, hybrid, and physically distant in-person settings.

Teachers can plan ahead for the classroom transition

As many children begin the transition back to the classroom, teachers can arrange spaces and materials to limit problems and prepare children for successful problem solving before they arrive.
