Course Description:

As many teachers are transitioning into the world of online and hybrid learning, supporting exceptional students can become challenging. This course explores strategies to support exceptional students and how they can apply to Language Classrooms. These strategies include: effective notes and note taking, scaffolding learning digitally, approaches to challenges with reading, opportunities for students to do asynchronous and self paced learning, and supporting students in their time management and organization. As these strategies are examined, a wide variety of apps and online tools that can support exceptional students in an online learning experience will be shared with examples of how they can be used effectively.  (Open to All Language Teachers. Conducted in English)
