Let’s get our classrooms in order for whatever the 2020-21 year brings. 

Over this 4 week, asynchronous course (Monday, August 3 - Friday August 28), we will work independently and collaboratively to

  • Prepare lesson plan structures for the entire course

  • Build out specifics for the first 6 weeks of instruction 

  • Create structures for orchestrating blended learning

  • Embed productive routines to engage each learner

  • Embed equitable teaching practices

Earn 15-30 STEM clock hours while we will address the practical details of organizing and planning out our blended learning classrooms for the 2020-21 school year. Whatever your curriculum, whatever your learning management system, and however blended your classroom will be—let’s get ready.

Weekly areas of focus:

  1. Welcome the learner: Purposefully build rapport and invite each person.

  2. Engage the learner: Use routines to implement equitable practices.

  3. Empower the learner: Make structures to develop identity and agency. 

  4. Support the learner: Provide structures for effective discourse and reflection.

  5. Tools for the learner: Equip your classroom with needed technology.

  6. Assessment for the learner: Help each learner know how to grow.
