Questions

(8:00 ET) Intro/Welcome: Welcome to #Masterychat! Introduce yourself, let us know where you’re from, and share a tradition you associate with this time of year. 

(8:05 ET) Q1 By sharing traditions, you’re sharing a part of your culture. Culture, according to Zarretta Hammond, is, “…the way that every brain makes sense of the world.” How do you engage students in sharing their culture during this time of year? #MasteryChat
