Virtual Learning Sessions for Monday, August 9
An inquiry based classroom can take many forms, but one of the most difficult pieces to think about for many teachers is the compelling question: "what does an inquiry based assessment of learning look like?" Explore some examples and ideas of what you can accomplish by putting student voice and choice center in your social studies classroom.
What is "engagement?" How do you know your class is "engaged?" In this session, examine engagement in our classrooms, what it looks like, and how to increase it in our classrooms with some easy design qualities in the work that we are asking our students to complete. Leave with some simple things you can do for that fall to engage your students in the work!
All students benefit when they have access to books that both mirror their lived experiences and provide a window into the lives of people who don’t share their social identities and life experiences. This session will provide tools and resources for finding, sharing, and integrating inclusive books into your classroom.
Looking for a way to engage your students? Nearpod is an interactive presentation tool that can be used in person, or self-paced, which allows the teachers to assess in real time and, most importantly, it's fun!
