Building Community and Social Awareness: A Mini-Unit to Launch the School Year – 8/6/2020

Establishing an inclusive and open classroom community is a critical task for teachers to ensure active engagement throughout the school year. In a remote or blended learning environment, this task becomes more challenging.

Join us for an online workshop that outlines a complete introductory unit ideal for the start of the school year. Teachers will learn strategies to engage students in exploring their identity, building empathy for others, and developing a sense of global literacy. Activities will employ students’ literacy skills while promoting positive relationships between the teacher and students as well as among students.

Zoom link and passwords will be emailed to participants prior to the event start time.  Please contact one of the course instructors if you do not receive the email.
