Our world has changed dramatically and irreversibly in the last year, and for our students in ways perhaps unseen by us adults. For a school-based model of teaching and learning to remain relevant, and in order to ensure engagement and success for our students, authenticity is key. Adolescents have endured distance learning, social isolation, and uncertainty about the world around them. By making sure that learning remains authentic and relevant to the realities of students’ lives in 2021, we can take powerful action to support their well-being and success.

Secondary teachers of all subjects are invited to examine methods of systematically incorporating everyday issues into course-design, creating authentic and meaningful connections between curriculum topics and current situations. Participants will collaborate in an interactive session, identifying and sharing new ways to keep students excited and active in the learning process, even during remote teaching.
