2021 HH4T Schedule:

  • February 5
    Join us for our kick-off where we look at the coming year and what practices you will put into place based on your virtual classroom experiences to date.
  • February 12
    General open forum discussion this Friday. We are building a list of resources for teachers by teachers which can be anything including but not limited to articles, books, teacher spotlights, activities, etc. If you would like to share with us, please bring your ideas!
  • February 19
    Discuss ideas, strategies, and adaptation techniques in engaging students in asynchronous environments. This environment is most likely the most challenging. When students are isolated and have no chance to engage with peers or teachers, how do we support and build those connections?
  • February 26
    We invite you to attend this event at our sister campus, UC Davis for a panel discussion on  Race and the Transition to Adulthood. This event is from 3:30 -  5pm. Please register here for tomorrow's event.
