The Voices of Wisconsin Students Project offers unique insight on middle and high school students’ experiences with learning, coping, and building resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This project – the first of its kind in the nation – used focus group discussions with 160 students from across Wisconsin to provide a deeper understanding of the nature of their stress and anxiety; their real-world experiences with learning; and what they say they need to be successful moving forward through the pandemic. The findings of this study are relevant for school leaders, medical and mental health professionals, governmental and social service agencies, community organizations, and others seeking to meet the educational, physical, social, and emotional needs of students in the complex and rapidly changing context of COVID-19.
WIPPS Research Partners will host a Zoom presentation of the project findings on Wednesday, May 5, from 3:30-4:30 pm. To register for this presentation, visit: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Gmb5Xv2JSFi0XF_POzjJiQ
