Distance Learning with Common Sense: Empowering Student Expression Online



Ever feel like your message doesn’t carry the same weight online? Are your students finding it difficult to express themselves? Join singer and first grade educator Anastasia Eichorn, along with executive director of Hip Hop for Change Khafre Jay, as we explore ways educators can model and nurture student expression. Leave with engaging tips on how to find your authentic voice plus resources with ways to leverage student expression.

In this weekly video series from Common Sense, we sit down for short discussions with educators from all over the country to learn how they’re coping with school closures, putting together distance-learning plans, and addressing some of the challenges that come with teaching remotely.
