Adapting to the new ‘normal”: Tips and Tools for engaging and supporting all middle and high school students with online learning
For the California Teacher Development Collaborative
Are you struggling to engage adolescent learners and meet the various challenges of working with different ability students during this COVID 19 transition to online school? In this online workshop, Dr. Sharon Saline, clinical psychologist and author of the award winning book What your ADHD child wishes you knew: Working together to empower kids for success in school and life, will help keep kids engaged and accountable with online learning instead of rushing through their work to get back to social media or gaming. She will help you set up successful learning periods and incorporate differentiated instruction into your new online classroom. You will learn how to improve student participation and accountability in the distance learning model. Dr. Saline will share techniques for motivating students, addressing alternative learning styles and special needs concerns and maintaining your connections with teens from afar. We will also explore the new role for parents in their child’s education and how to support them in facilitating studying with appropriate levels of input to foster more cooperation and less conflict. This webinar will be both didactic and experiential so you’ll have opportunities to discuss issues particular to your individual situation and find workable solutions.
Dates: April 27, 2020, 3:15 – 4:30pm Pacific Time.
