As many educators settle into the reality of virtual learning and identify what works best (and what doesn’t) in their online classrooms, one thing has risen to the forefront: the importance of literacy instruction across the content areas. Our new normal did not eliminate every student’s individual needs. The need to differentiate instruction is ever-present, and the basis for differentiation is now rooted firmly in literacy instruction. We’re all writing teachers now!
Watch experienced blended and virtual educators, edtech experts, and authors, Shaelynn Farnsworth and Steven W. Anderson, as they discuss resources and strategies to best support online literacy instruction across the content areas for every student.
In this edWebinar, we explore best practices, tips, and tricks for virtual instruction, differentiation, and student engagement. Learn about curricular content, edtech tools, resources, and communities. As we are working to meet the needs of all students virtually, we also be mindful of issues related to equity, accessibility, and student populations with special needs.
We can do this together. Please watch the conversation.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through higher education teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, curriculum and instruction, TOSAs and coaches, assistant superintendents, and tech directors.
