Workshop Description...

This 3-hour workshop was designed for teachers who were successfully using Kagan before the shutdown and want to continue to reap the benefits of Kagan when students return to school in the fall. So many teachers and schools have asked how they can adapt Kagan for social distancing. This workshop is your answer! More than ever, students will crave social interaction. Instead of “social distancing,” we encourage teachers to create social closeness, but maintain physical distance. In this Zoom workshop presented live by a Kagan Master Trainer, learn how to adapt Kagan Structures and methods to maintain physical distance and minimize touching each other and shared equipment. You will review and adapt the steps of 15 Kagan Structures, so you and your students don’t skip a step when returning to school. As a bonus, given the more intense need for social bonding, we examine how Kagan Structures integrate social emotional learning (SEL) without time off academic curriculum.
Pre-requisite: Prior successful use of Kagan
