Upcoming Webinar for One-Room Schoolhouse Practitioners!

Upcoming Webinar for One-Room Schoolhouse Practitioners!

Do you teach ABE in a one-room schoolhouse, where students drop in for instruction, or where students are working at different levels on various content areas in one class?

Join us for a webinar focused on best practices for the one-room schoolhouse!

  • When: Thursday, January 31, 2019, 2:00 pm
  • Where: Anywhere there’s an internet connection!
  • Register here >>

Panelists from around the state will join this webinar to share their best routines for optimizing teaching and learning in the multilevel, unpredictable, drop-in settings so many ABE teachers work in. While this context is truly complex, there are great strategies for making it go more smoothly. Come learn what your colleagues are doing, and plan to share your ideas with us!

Are you part of the One-Room Schoolhouse Schoology group yet?

Schoology is a powerful online networking tool to ease the isolation that can come with some ABE settings and provide a place for growth and positive discussion on issues, concerns and curriculum that are unique to the one-room schoolhouse context.

Lunch and Learn

The One-Room Schoolhouse group on Schoology is a place to “meet” education professionals just like you, seek advice, share resources, and voice your concerns. You can even participate in an online Lunch and Learn discussion! Lunch and Learn takes place over the lunch hour, starting at noon. This month’s discussion will take place the same day as the webinar (12:00 pm on January 31) and focus on Susan Wetenkamp-Brandt’s Technology Integration Initiative. All you need to do to participate is go to the One-Room Schoolhouse group at noon!

So join us on Schoology!

If any of the following statements describe you, then you should join us!

  • I teach/manage multi-level classes
  • I teach/manage multi-subjects
  • I am interested in all things ABE

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 more.
