Unlocking Transformational Teaching Practice
05, 12 and/or 26 September
07:00 (London time)

Even the best intentioned teachers can feel overwhelmed by aspirations to engage diverse learners, include student voice, develop service connections, and assess for growth while also building subject area skills. Join Dr. Ellen Heyting and Rachael Thrash, co-creators of Cultivating Connections that Matter: A Toolkit for Transformational Teaching to practice unit planning that streamlines purposeful teaching into manageable steps.

In three, weekly, one-hour sessions, we will present two sample units, “How Do We Navigate Difference?” and “Why Do We Turn Away?” to demonstrate how unit planning can transform what students think, say, feel, and do, include their own timely and relevant additions to unit materials, engage them with the community, and be both accessible and challenging to a wide range of learning profiles. The third session will invite webinar participants to collaboratively develop a unit to implement in their own context. All sessions will include sample unit materials, time for questions and feedback, and opportunities to connect with other like-minded professionals aiming to teach for impact.
