Five Breakout Moves to Build a Community of Powerful Learners

Active-learning environments run the risk of devolving into chaos or replicating larger systems of inequity that exist outside the classroom. This webinar includes research-based strategies for developing a community of powerful learners in an active-learning classroom. Topics include co-developing norms around group learning, fostering a positive academic classroom mindset, deciding if a task is “group-worthy," and learning students’ names. Participants in this webinar learn (1) how to create a classroom structure that allows students to safely explore, experiment, improvise, take risks, make mistakes, and co-construct new knowledge with their peers; (2) strategies to ensure that inquiry-based group learning is inclusive and equitable for students from all backgrounds; (3) instructional moves that can immediately be incorporated into pedagogy to ensure their inquiry-based group learning approach is inclusive, engaging, and equitable.
