Evidence-based practices that work easily in the classroom can be a challenge when teaching remotely. Pivot Learning’s Dr. Monica Ng and CORE’s Dr. Carrie Thomas Beck had a conversation over Zoom with Dr. Anita Archer — author and beloved teacher of teachers — about how to adapt explicit instruction for distance learning.

In this four-part video series, Dr. Archer:

  • Shares tips for using hold ups to encourage active participation when students are online
  • Demonstrates how choral response can still be used even when students aren’t in a classroom together
  • Discusses how to use partner responses online
  • Shares simple ways to strengthen bonds with students while engaging in explicit instruction virtually
