Teaching this year will, in many ways, be different than ever before; to meet the upcoming challenges, each of us must lean on and support one another. As part of AFT’s commitment to sharing evidence-based strategies to meet the needs of your students, we are sponsoring a free online event that will feature practical ideas and strategies for teachers and school staff to use in a remote environment, as well as ways in which we can ensure facilities are safe for in-person learning.

Panel 1: Teaching and Reaching the Whole Child
Our nation is facing three intersecting crises, and our children are not immune to those pressures. This panel will focus on strategies to support the whole child, with an emphasis on equity, developing relationships and incorporating social emotional learning into the digital classroom.

Panel 2: Health and Safety in School Buildings
School buildings can only be open for in-person instruction when it is safe. This panel will feature ways in which practitioners can advocate for safer facilities—and things they can do themselves.  

Panel 3: Engaging Practices for Teaching and Learning
Most students will spend at least some time this year learning remotely. This panel will focus on strategies to engage in meaningful and deep teaching and learning practices while physically distant.


Available for two-hours of PD credit.

You will be eligible to receive two hours of professional development recertification credit for participation in this webinar if you complete all the poll questions, survey, and actively watch the webinar. At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to download a certificate that verifies you completed the webinar. Check with your school district in advance of the webinar to ensure that the PD recertification credit is accepted.
NOTE: this will be available on demand after the event has finished.

Loved the speakers and was very informative. The technical difficulties were distracting and frustrating.
