Starting the School Year With Connection and Community

In this webinar, we explore teaching strategies and flexible resources designed to help you begin getting to know your students as individuals and facilitating the process of creating an open, supportive, and reflective classroom community. We additionally model classroom routines that teachers can implement from day one to support effective learning and meaningful engagement with contemporary issues and concerns in your homeroom, advisory, or academic courses.

Materials and resources are designed for middle school and high school level students.
