Cooking with Canvas
April 8, 4:00 p.m. EST
The webinar examines how the Yuma Union High School District (YUHSD) uses Canvas, to enhance instruction in the CTE classroom as well as ensure students can practice proficiency of state standards when absent from school. The YUHSD utilizes Canvas to create a high functioning PLC that can constantly collaborate regardless of location. These methods also lend themselves to assisting new teachers in program areas to ensure engaging and appropriate content is being taught. This session will provide the materials to get started if currently using Canvas. Districts that do not currently have Canvas could apply the same theories to other learning management systems or Google Classroom. The webinar will use Culinary Arts as the primary example but could be applied to any CTE program area. The webinar will address changes made and adaption due to the COVID-19 school closure.
