Culturally Responsive Getting-to-Know-You Activities
It’s always a challenge to get to know each and every student at the beginning of the semester. And no matter how well we may deliver our lessons in the classroom, if we are not able to make relevant and meaningful connections, we have completely missed the mark. This workshop offers strategies for connecting with students in elementary and middle school using activities that meet them where they are right now.
In this preview, Linda Johnson shares a simple activity that students can do at home or in class to personalize their face coverings. While this session is geared towards early elementary students, you could easily adapt this for middle and high school students as a getting-to-know-you exercise.
