LFNTX 5.15.20 Hosted by RISD

We look forward to connecting with you Friday, May 15th from 11:00 – 12:30. During this time we will discuss the following.

  • Summer Conferences & Summer Professional Learning
  • New Teacher Support for the 20-21 School Year
  • Paraprofessional/Support Staff for summer & the 20-21 school year

Some things to consider before we chat:

  • What virtual platforms will you use to connect for Summer professional learning?
  • What tips have you learned about designing or coordinating virtual professional learning so far? 
  • What are some creative ways to include inclusion activities in LIVE sessions?
  • For LIVE sessions that are longer, how are you incorporating movement to break up the learning?  

We will use the breakout feature on Zoom during our time and will create a Google document to capture your groups notes on, so we can have access to the notes after we meet.

Join us if you can☺ The details for the Zoom are below. 

Carrie Saunders is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
