Schooling During a Crisis – Pandemic Pedagogy Beyond Triage
September 2, 3:30pm (PST)
The GSOE at TUC will host the second of two “Schooling During a Crisis” webinars. The crisis during the second half of the 2019-20 school year was an emergency. Like any emergency, teachers triaged their individual situation and made decisions about how to maintain some measure of instructional continuity for their students. This situation often placed demands on the home that parents were unprepared and unable to accommodate. This session will explore ways that teachers can better design, deliver, and support the remote instruction that is expected for much of the 2020-21 school year; as well as how parents can begin to prepare for the school year to best support their children.
