Teaching Listening Comprehension During Remote Learning ›
Listening comprehension is an essential skill for today’s students, especially as a foundational building block for literacy. We know that better listeners are better learners. Research shows that students can listen at least two grade levels higher than they can read. Join us in learning more about different ways including using podcasts to help students with their listening and comprehension skills even while learning remotely. Teaching with podcasts is a fun and engaging way to teach content, language, and grow listening skills. We'll explore how to integrate resources into your instruction and how you can use Listenwise’s collection of podcasts to unlock literacy.

Setting and Accomplishing Goals for Students and Teachers in School and at Home ›
Communities have goals for their children. They want them to read well and to have sufficient levels of mathematics and content knowledge and skills so that they can grow up to have productive lives. Often these goals are not made explicit to students. Further, one aspect of productive lives is often overlooked in schools--how reasonable goals are identified and accomplished. Building from her previous webinar of "Ways to Recognize, Celebrate, & Share Learning—Wherever Students Are," this continuation presentation will have Elfrieda (Freddy) H. Hiebert go into greater detail about identifying and accomplishing goals. The objective of this session is to increase our awareness as educators of how goal identification and accomplishment works with our students and also in our own professional and personal lives.

On-Demand Journey Through Google Expeditions ›
How can you shift from presenting topics in isolation to creating learning experiences that integrate STEM education? COVID 19 has placed an emphasis on the ‘Why’ behind the need for STEM education. By integrating STEM, students gain understanding of topics as they figure out why something is happening or create a solution to a problem such as the current pandemic. The focus of learning needs to shift from the end product to the actual process of learning.
On-Demand Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science ›
Michael Padilla, author Elevate Science, presents Problem Solving, Inquiry, and Scientific Thinking in Science: Problem solving, inquiry and scientific practices continue to be a central element of science teaching. With the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, it is even more critical that teachers develop ways to get students to use scientific practices to problem solve and inquire. This session focuses on Next Gen practices and will outline teaching strategies you can use to develop these important skills.
