Collection of Resources Compiled from the September 2020 Theme of the Month Webinar Panel
These are resources gathered from the webinar Online and Hybrid and In-Person, Oh My! Strategies for Supporting Students and Teachers Amidst Reopening Schools that took place on September 23, 2020.
While it may seem like doom and gloom every time we hear the news, there are amazing educators who are taking care of each other and their students and using this crisis as an opportunity to strengthen their practice. This panel spotlights some of those leaders sharing resources they have developed and utilized during the pandemic. The webinar will address multiple challenges around school reopening, including emotional connectivity to and engagement of students. Panelists’ experience spans elementary to high school teaching, STEM coaching, and teacher preparation; virtual, as well as in-person instruction; and a variety of district situations in California, Kentucky, and Connecticut. Supporting K-12 students’ academic and social and emotional learning (SEL) needs – as well as those of pre- and in-service teachers – and other effective practices will be highlighted, with emphasis and discussion around attendees’ application for use with their own students or teachers they prepare.
