Using Your Community as a Teaching Resource:
Connect Your Students to the Heart of Their Community
February 2, 2023
Join us for a powerful and intimate day of new learning and inspiration, as we dig deep into the pedagogy and methods for using the community as a classroom. Participants will explore and apply teaching strategies that help students connect with, understand, and engage with their community, with personal perspective and new eyes. Learn to employ innovative field tested strategies from veteran innovative educators. We will also make connections to the significant Social Emotional Learning impact we see when students feel a sense of Identity, Belonging, and Mattering—a perfect compliment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals. A design based planning guide and essential readings will be provided. There will also be opportunities to workshop your own context, thinking, and curriculum ideas for feedback and support in smaller community of practice groups. Followup support is available.
