Pioneer Valley Books Office Hours Webinar Series: Using Literacy Footprints: Hybrid Teaching
With many districts proposing split schedules where students’ classroom time will be divided between in-school settings and remote learning at home, teachers are facing uncharted territory where they will need to facilitate literacy instruction in two very different settings. In this session, we will explore possible schedules for supporting students in guided reading in both scenarios using the Literacy Footprints Classroom Collections for students in school and the Digital Reader and accompanying digital lesson plans for students learning at home.

Aug 6, 2020 04:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
