In this one hour interactive workshop with education experts Cornelius Minor and Kass Minor, learn how to reimagine teaching and learning beyond your classroom walls (literally!). Whether you are returning to teach in your school building full time, going 100% remote, or trekking through a hybrid model, together, Cornelius and Kass will discuss concrete possibilities developed with teachers throughout the quarantine and remote learning to be utilized and adapted for your teaching situation.
Additionally, during this workshop, participants will practice using Kass and Cornelius’s resources created in response to youth and school community needs to provide support and powerful learning experiences for all, including communal blue prints for mapping out learning experiences in a variety of configurations.
To be as responsive as possible, upon registration, Kass and Cornelius want to hear from you! What questions do you have about how to approach teaching and learning in Fall 2020? What are your primary concerns? What are you most excited about?
To include your questions/comments in the conversation, look out for an email from The Author Village asking you to submit questions the week before the webinar OR tag @AuthorVillage on Twitter using the hashtag #RedefiningBackToSchool.
