One-Room Schoolhouse

The one-room schoolhouse is a teaching and learning context where students drop in for instruction unpredictably, or where students are working at different levels on various content areas in one class. ABE practitioners working in one-room schoolhouse settings have unique challenges that have become ever more complicated as our field evolves to include an emphasis on standards, career pathways, technology, student persistence, and so on.

To serve those working in such complex multi-level contexts, ATLAS provides support specifically targeted to one-room schoolhouse practitioners. We offer regular webinars, workshops, and an extremely active online community of practice hosted on the Schoology platform.

Webinars & Workshops

Facilitated by Minnesota ABE teachers and administrators working within this challenging context, webinars are offered throughout the year to provide opportunities for one-room schoolhouse practitioners to hear from each other about effective strategies and discuss issues of common interest.

ATLAS also offers workshops on one-room schoolhouse and other multi-level instructional contexts at Fall and Spring Regionals across Minnesota.
