As educators continue to integrate writing into all forms of remote learning — and grapple with the emotional aspects of teaching in 2020-21 academic year — the Chippewa River Writing Project is offering a half-day mini-conference on Saturday, January 30, 2021.

Through whole- and small-group Zoom sessions in which we will model our own synchronous online literacy learning for middle and high school students, we welcome up to 90 K-College teachers to join us for the day, and to gain insights on best practices for remote learning.

We will engage in a synchronous Zoom session from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM EST, with brief breaks , exploring topics such as:

  • Creating an Online Teaching Presence
  • Organizing an Online Classroom
  • Creative Approaches to Any Time (Asynchronous) Learning
  • Engaging Students during Real Time (Synchronous) Instruction
  • Authentic Assessment for Online Learning
