Webinar focus: How do we support student-directed curiosity and inquiry when student learning outcomes are created in advance of meeting students? What does it mean to lesson plan “in the moment.”

About this webinar: CLTV talks with teachers who think carefully about classroom designs—both physical and virtual elements—that support community and empathy building in their classrooms. In partnership with CLTV, Educator Innovator simulcasted these webinars as part of the September CLTV Series curated by Kim Jaxon: “Back to School: Creating the School Year We Want to Live In.”

About the series: In September 2015, we explored the foundational work educators do to make “Back to School” challenging, rewarding, and hopeful. We visited with guests that thought about how classroom design nurtures community, inquiry, and supports students as they come to see themselves as experts who contribute to our learning environments. Guests also shared how they find ways to nurture their own professional growth throughout the busy school year. Each webinar addressed how these foundations and routines are developed beginning with day 1 in the classroom.

Guests for this webinar included:

  • Kim Jaxon (host) is an Associate Professor of English/Composition at California State University, Chico. She received her Ph.D. at UC Berkeley in the Language & Literacy, Society & Culture program in the Graduate School of Education.
  • Leslie Atkins is an Associate Professor of Science Education and Physics at CSU, Chico.
  • Peter Kittle is a Professor of English Education at CSU, Chico and Director of the Northern California Writing Project.
  • Suzanne Mills-Crawford is a supervising teacher at Mills College and a former middle school  educator in Georgia.
