Learning and Well-Being in Emergencies: Resource Kit

The ‘Learning & Wellbeing in Emergencies’ toolkit (LWiE) focuses on building and measuring early foundational literacy skills, alongside social emotional learning, in emergency contexts with a particular focus on community engagement as a key support for children. The toolkit contains components that include Introduction for proposal development and advocacy; Community Action for initial non-formal education or informal learning; Teacher Training to support teachers/facilitators; Learner Assessment tools, and a comprehensive Community Action component to support literacy and well-being in the immediate aftermath of a crisis. Education Specialists & Program Managers will find this toolkit most useful. Teachers will be able to use tools and curriculum to inform their classroom pedagogy and socio-emotional support to students. Once trained, the activities and resources can also be used by community members as part of a wider community-led engagement strategy.  The toolkit should be used in conjunction with ISELA - Social Emotional Learning Assessment tool. It may also be used with the Numeracy Boost Toolkit. The International Rescue Committee’s Safe Healing and Learning Spaces toolkit also includes a number of activities for use by teachers in the classroom as well as for parents that would complement the LWiE Toolkit.

The current documents cover two of the three LWIE pillars. Learner Assessment is to be completed in 2019.
