Students Who Experience Emotional Crises: How to Ensure That Learning Takes Place in the Classroom The purpose of this project was to provide a resource for educators to use as a reference when a child in their classroom experiences crisis. After speaking with local teaching staff, this researcher concluded that: (a) many teachers are ill prepared to deal with students who have emotional crises, and (b) the majority of support for students comes from school psychiatrists or counselors. The crises chosen for this project were: (a) community violence, (b) separation/divorce, (c) death of a parent, (d) changing schools or moving, (e) parental incarceration, and (f) parental illness. A Power Point presentation and accompanying brochure were developed with the intent to be given as at a school inservice program. ii
