Effective, standards-aligned teaching and learning are only possible when an optimal learning environment is in place. In optimal learning environments, instruction addresses the needs of every learner with ever-present attention to equity and continuous academic, social, and emotional growth. Educators prioritize knowing their students, have deep understanding of the content they teach, and collaborate with each other regularly to maximize student success.
In this session, we will help you plan for the three domains of an optimal learning environment:
1. Create emotionally, intellectually, and physically safe environments
2. Implement equitable, culturally responsive, and standards-aligned curriculum and instruction
3. Meet the diverse needs of every learner
You will leave with a plan that you can start to implement right away!
