OSSE invites general and special education teachers, instructional coaches, instructional coaches, journalism teachers for grades 3-12 to register for a two-part professional development opportunity focused on using digital tools for storytelling in the age of remote learning. Research has found that embedding SEL objectives into academic courses increases student’s success. These skills will be even more vital as schools look towards recovery and re-entry. In this session, we will discuss the five competencies of SEL and how they align to literacy standards. Participants of the session will:
- Dig into the elements of storytelling aligned to Common Core State Standards for Literature, Writing, Speaking and Listening,
- Engage with digital storytelling platforms, and
- Brainstorm for application during remote learning.
The session will equip participants in being prepared to increase engagement, develop and enhance speaking and listening and elevate student voice during remote learning. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to engage and collaborate with colleagues across the city to enhance and strengthen practice.
Participants will receive six professional learning units (PLUs) for attending both virtual sessions.
