Virtual Meetups for Content Area Educators

The Ohio Department of Education is scheduling virtual meetups in collaboration with various professional organizations across the state to support administrators and educators in each content area during the ordered school-building closure. The purpose of the forum is to support educators and provide a platform to network, share and gain new skills or strategies to help students succeed while learning remotely. This aligns with the vision of Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education, Each Child, Our Future, which focuses on the whole child by empowering teachers to help students become resilient, lifelong learners who contribute to society. The virtual meetups will help facilitate discussions about equitable learning opportunities and practices for each child while partnering with educators and professional organizations to promote quality schools and student success.

The Department will co-host and publicize the virtual meetups in conjunction with guest facilitators sponsored by a professional organization. The virtual meetups will be scheduled by content area. Sessions will focus on a broad range of topics or strategies depending on the content area. 

Additional Information can be found on each content area’s resources webpage. Further information on virtual meetups can be found on each content specific webpage. Links to each content area are below:

A tale of two teachers Session Materials

This three-part series showcases two Ohio teachers who developed platforms for students and parents to follow at home and a methodology for students to provide evidence of learning. Part 1 and Part 2 each featured one teacher who shared details of what she developed to teach in an online environment. Part 3 will provide educators an opportunity to ask questions and collaborate with colleagues to build foundations for their instruction during the 2020-2021 academic year. (See table below for schedule information.)

Below, are the session slides and recordings from Parts 1 and 2 of this series.

Tools to Help All Students and Educators

In many areas of study accessible from the Ohio Department of Education’s Learning in Ohio webpages, educators will find links for the following topics:

  • Standards – Educators will find vertical alignment documents that show how student’s knowledge or skill should increase in particular categories of the standards throughout several grade levels. Also see crosswalks and comparative analysis to show how the 2010 and 2017 standards differ.
  • Networking – The department participates in websites such as Pearltrees that allow educators to share tips and observations about what works. Teachers can use “pearls” as idea starters as they design lessons and activities for their classrooms.
  • Universal design – These resources help teachers tailor instruction for learners with disabilities, English learners and gifted students. 
  • Professional development – The Ohio Standards for Professional Development will help educators identify high-quality learning opportunities. 
  • Career connections – These materials will help teachers build students’ understanding of how their school work will relate to future jobs.
