Continuity of Learning and H1N1: What Questions Do You Have?


If you missed ASCD’s web seminar H1N1 and Continuity of
Learning: Meeting Students’ Learning Needs When they Return to School
, set
aside some time to listen to the archived version of the presentation at our H1N1 page. Hosted by ASCD author and faculty member John Brown, this
informative online seminar addresses the timely question of how educators can prepare for the possibility of lengthy and wide-spread absences due to H1N1.

Concentrating on students’ return to the classroom, Brown briefly discusses the Department of Education’s recommendations on H1N1 before reviewing a number of helpful tips and tools that educators can use as they plan for this year’s flu season. He explores what a H1N1 continuity plan should cover, underscores the importance of collaborative planning, and highlights the power of diagnostic assessment and its relationship to student learning needs.

Whether you’re currently dealing with students returning from extended absences or still preparing for the possibility, ASCD wants to help.
