Full course description
- To ensure compliance with the stipulations of EARSS grant, school based team leads will be training in data collection, culturally responsive practices, community based resources and CDE compliance measures. Specifically representatives from the JAC, Homebound, Dropout Intervention and the Collaborative Management Program, will discuss resources specific to student learning options during the pandemic. Additionally, Pop Culture Classroom (PCC), the Denver-based non-profit best known for their yearly mega-convention, Denver Pop Culture Con, believes in using pop culture to engage and educate students of all backgrounds. In this training, the Pop Culture Classroom Education Team will lead hands-on exploration to highlight ways that pop culture media – including comics, graphic novels, film, television, and games – can be used to support students’ literacy, art skills, and social-emotional learning. Participants will also learn about how PCC's pop culture-based educational resources promote inclusive learning experiences and culturally responsive teaching. You’ll leave the training with practical tools, materials, and strategies to engage your students in large groups, small groups, and 1-on-1 settings. You’ll also learn more about Pop Culture Classroom's mission, philosophy, and many educational efforts in the Denver area and across the country.
