Resources for Building Community

Our teaching and our students’ learning benefit from a feeling of community in our classrooms.  The sooner that feeling is created the better, but getting there can be difficult when our students are learning remotely, quarantined, and experiencing a mix of the excitement for the beginning of a new semester and the anxiety of a health crisis. Ideas and reminders for building and sustaining community are easily found on Colgate’s Teach Where You Are website in the Strategies > Building and Sustaining Community section.  Today might be the best day of the semester to check it out.
