KET is offering a group online viewing and discussion of “A Trusted Space,” a new film about mitigating the emotional effects of COVID-19 on students and teachers.
The 43-minute film will be shown at 7 p.m. ET Dec. 15. Register online to watch “A Trusted Space” to receive an event link and reminders. It’s also available on PBS LearningMedia along with a 64-page facilitator guide.
Kentucky educators attending the virtual screening include PBS Digital Innovator All-Star Ashley Judd, a 4th-grade reading teacher at Tyner Elementary; PBS Digital Innovator All-Star and KET Education All-Star Dee Dee Webb, technology integration specialist with Grayson County schools; KET Education All-Stars Sam Northern, library media specialist at Simpson Elementary, and Janet Lanham, media services resource librarian with Jefferson County schools.
The film emphasizes that secure relationships with a trusted adult in the classroom can mitigate student stress, but also urges teachers to take care of themselves first so they are able to create that trusted safe space.
