Creating Class Community during Distance Learning

Online Classes held from 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Session 1: Saturday 8/8

Session 2: Saturday 8/29

At a time when we are social distancing, how can we create meaningful connections with students in a virtual environment?

This interactive workshop for teachers will empower you with strategies and practices that will help build your classroom community during distance learning using applied improvisation and the principles of story. You'll leave with ingredients to help you move your class persona into our new virtual reality.

Our first meeting on Saturday, August 8 will focus on strategies to get you off to a strong start. After we've all had a few weeks with our students, our follow up meeting on Saturday, August 29th will focus on workshopping challenges and upping our undistancing game.

This course is limited to a max of 30 teachers.
