AN EMPTY SEAT IN CLASS
Teaching and learning after the death of a student
An Empty Seat in Class illuminates the tragedy of student death and suggests ways of dealing and healing within the classrooom community. This book weaves the story of author Rich Ayers's very personal experience of a student's fatal shooting with short pieces by other educators who have worked through equally terrible events. It also includes important contributions from counselors, therapists, and school principals. Through their accumulated wisdom, educators are given the means and the resources to find their own path to healing their students, their communities and themselves.
