Perseverance In A Strange Land: The Voices of the Youth During the COVID-19 Pandemic!
During any rapidly changing situation, loss of daily routine, isolation, and uncertainty can lead to anxiety, fear, depression, and loneliness.
Dr. Stephen Bond, a Social Studies teacher at Wilson Preparatory Academy in Wilson, North Carolina, spoke with his students via email and text during the COVID-19 crisis that ended the 2020 school year and discovered many were feeling these emotions. Dr. Bond let them know that it was OK to be upset. He encouraged them to come to him and their parents with any new questions about the virus, and he asked his students to express their feelings. This phenomenal book, jam-packed with challenging activities like word searches, crossword puzzles, and colorful drawings by the talented Illustrator Denzell Greene, covers what Dr. Bond's students had to say and more.
