How to Think about Covid-19 and Children

  • Wednesday May 27

  • 2:00PM–3:00PM

  • Online

Key Take Aways:

  • What we know (and what we don't know) about Covid-19 and its affect on children and schools
  • How do we think about and make predictions based on conflicting, and constantly changing information from different sources?
  • How to evaluate the quality and objectivity of information and detect biases
  • Will there be a second wave in the fall and if so how should schools respond?

Guest Speaker: Dr. Emily Oster
