Education and mental health support from Sacramento State
K-12 Online Lessons: Sacramento State teacher credential candidates have developed a number of online grade level-specific lessons that families at home can use to further their children’s education while schools are closed. Lessons generally feature three elements: a video clip explaining the content; an activity to engage students in the content; and a quiz or other assignment at the end. Lessons are previously recorded, so students can complete them on their own schedule and there is no risk of “Zoombombing.” More information on these lessons, called “Sacramento State’s Web Academy,” which are taught by the same students student-teaching in local schools can be found here. Further information about the online lessons also is below.
Free Counseling: Sacramento State’s Center for Counseling and Diagnostic Services (CCDS) is offering free virtual counseling to members of the Sacramento community who may need it in this difficult time. Threats posed by the coronavirus pandemic have created stress and anxiety for many. For some, unanticipated costs and the requirements of social distancing restrict access to mental health services when it is needed most. These 50-minute “teletherapy” sessions are provided by Sacramento State graduate counseling students under licensed faculty supervision. More information on this service can be found here.
