What would school be like in Fall 2020 if teachers were the ones doing the planning?
This 2-hour program invites teachers to wrestle with the task of envisioning the next phase of education during this pandemic. Participants will leave better prepared to engage in these discussions in their home schools and districts and with a better understanding of what our collective educational futures may hold.
The session will begin with 45 minutes of preparatory information. You'll hear from: a public health expert, someone from California Federation of Teachers, and classroom teachers from Taiwan, Iceland, and Quebec, Canada about their experiences with in-person teaching during the pandemic.
Next, participants will spend 45 minutes in breakout groups in guided discussion about the benefits, disadvantages, and consequences of different models for re-opening. During this time, panelists will be available to visit virtual rooms and answer questions.
Finally, in the last 30 minutes groups will report back about their ideas and concerns.
This program is intended for teachers, staff, and site administrators at K-12 schools in California. Post-secondary educators and K-12 teachers from other states are welcome to register, but if space begins to fill preference will be given to K-12 teachers in California.
