INTERACTIVE LESSON ON MANAGING GRIEF
INCLUDES TIMED WRITING JOURNAL PROMPTS
PROMOTE MINDFUL REFLECTION + GROWTH MINDSET
As our lives begin to return to a sense of normalcy, it is important to integrate our experiences. This lesson explains that grief is not something we only experience when we lose a person; grief is something we can experience when we lose anything. This loss will look different for every student in your classroom; however, there are strategies you can use to help students cope with all forms of grief.
The journal prompts within this lesson reflect up-to-date research on how to support students experiencing negative emotions associated with the pandemic. These prompts include having students reframe their loss, balance negative and positive memories, and practice letting go of difficult experiences. Students are encouraged to avoid using specific words associated with the pandemic, like "quarantine" or "COVID-19;" in doing so, students will explore the depth of their experiences instead of using these terms as a blanket response.
Finally, students will practice future writing in order to cope with anticipatory anxiety and set realistic expectations for the coming months. Through visualizing this return to normalcy, students will be prepared to handle the changes they will inevitably go through.
This resource includes worksheets that correspond with the prompts within the slideshow lesson.
