Aug. 17: Facilitating Quality Practice
Quality practice looks, sounds, and feels different virtually. Let's practice with tools that teachers and paraeducators can use with students. We will learn about best practices for online learning, including instructor presence, learning objectives, real world applications, clear expectations, engaging students, prompt feedback, and netiquette. We will focus on two platforms: Seesaw and Google Classroom.  Register here. 

Aug. 24: Providing Accommodations and Scaffolding Online
How do you support students with IEPs, English language learners, and older students with developing literacy skills in an asynchronous distance learning environment? Using Google Classroom, learn strategies for providing accommodations, scaffolds, SIOP features, and elements of explicit instruction in an asynchronous setting that support all students. Register here.

In solidarity,
