Remote Teaching Strategies to Sustain Student-Centered Learning
Facing History and Ourselves supports teachers and students in making sense of the rapidly evolving circumstances around the novel coronavirus and in effectively using whatever educational “class time” they have together. Teachers can view three on-demand webinar series in which they will explore remote teaching strategies and approaches to creating community and sustaining student-centered learning in a digital environment. They will learn about interdisciplinary connections, media literacy, strategies for supporting students’ social–emotional wellbeing, and resources to probe deeper questions about community, responsibility, and the common good. They will also gain understanding of the preparations schools should be doing and explore teaching strategies for online learning. In addition, they can use Facing History’s free readings and resources to start conversations with their students about the coronavirus outbreak and explore questions about community, responsibility, decision-making, and upstanding that are relevant in this moment. Featured in the Resource Library is A Guide for Supporting Remote Student Book Clubs,” “Parenting and Caregiving for Adolescents During the COVID-19 Epidemic,” and “Taking Students Online With a Student-Centered Approach.” The page is updated biweekly.
