The professional development for online teaching and learning that you've been asking for

An unprecedented pandemic may change the definition of classroom, but it doesn't have to change your definition of good teaching. Now that you're making the shift to online teaching, it's time to answer your biggest questions about remote, digitally based instruction:

  • How do I build and nurture relationships with students and their at-home adults from afar?
  • How do I adapt my best teaching to an online setting?
  • How do I keep a focus on students and their needs when they aren't in front of me?

Jennifer Serravallo's Connecting with Students Online gives you concise, doable answers based on her own experiences and those of the teachers, administrators, and coaches she has communicated with during the pandemic. Focusing on the vital importance of the teacher-student connection, Jen guides you to:

  • effectively prioritize what matters most during remote, online instruction
  • schedule your day and your students' to maximize teaching and learning (and avoid burnout)
  • streamline curricular units and roll them out digitally
  • record highly engaging short lessons that students will enjoy and learn from
  • confer, working with small groups, and drive learning through independent practice
  • partner with the adults in a student's home to support your work with their child.

Featuring simplified, commonsense suggestions, 55 step-by-step teaching strategies, and video examples of Jen conferring and working with small groups, Connecting with Students Online helps new teachers, teachers new to technology, or anyone who wants to better understand the essence of effective online instruction. Along the way Jen addresses crucial topics including assessment and progress monitoring, student engagement and accountability, using anchor charts and visuals, getting books into students' hands, teaching subject-area content, and avoiding teacher burnout.

Jennifer Serravallo's Connecting with Students Online is of-the-moment, grounded in important research, informed by experience, and designed to get you teaching well-and confidently-as quickly as possible.
