Spark your festive Holiday Mood at our Celebration of Educators’ Panel/Fall Meeting on Friday, Dec. 11, 7:00 – 8:30 pm by ZOOM! We will be welcoming as panelists newly elected school board members, including Veronica Davidson of Albany Unified School District and newly elected Berkeley Unified School District Board members Laura Babitt and Ana Vasudeo. The Zoom link will be emailed to ticket holders the evening before the event – please see the link at the bottom of the page to eventbrite where you can reserve your free tickets!
Emphasizing the theme of “Pursuing Excellence in Uncharted Territory”, the panel discussion will begin with a brief statement from each of the panelists, followed by their responses to questions from League members and the audience focusing on needs of K-12 students in today’s Covid 19-challenged environment – such as 1) what measures help students learn most effectively when distance-learning, 2) how can distance learning be made attractive to discourage absenteeism, 3) what virtual learning strategies could be effective in preventing long-term deficits in achievement once in-person classes resume, 4) how to help students recognize and avoid misinformation on social media platforms.
The second part of the program will be devoted to the League’s Fall Meeting, which had to be postponed until December to avoid conflict with Voter Services activities supporting the November election. A brief business meeting will be followed by small groups socializing in break-out rooms in celebration of the holiday time. Sign up on eventbrite now so that you don’t miss this gala event. If you’re not a League member, you could join right now on our website to be able to attend this sure-to-be memorable event!
