Playful Procedures: Building a Community of Learners through Responsive Classroom
Too often, we lose sight of process, creation, exploration, and more when addressing behavior – and teaching virtually has only exacerbated these challenges. How can we create a community of learners when teaching from a distance, when on a cart, or when in various blended scenarios? In this workshop, we’ll learn more about Responsive Classroom and how we can utilize its principles to continue to make music and gather together whether in-person or on the screen
