Book Description

Through the lens of Turbulence Theory, this volume offers students and scholars an innovative toolkit for understanding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on teachers, families, and students. Bringing together cases from early childhood and special education written by parents and educators, author Susan H. Shapiro leverages Turbulence Theory as a framework to help readers evaluate the level of turbulence during each scenario and what methods, if any, might help mitigate or escalate the situation. With more than 20 insightful case-based examples and discussion questions, this book explores what lessons and strategies we can bring into future crises—and how we move forward in an ever-evolving educational landscape.
