How do we build ensemble in 2021 when students have spent the past year in and out of a virtual classroom? How do you incorporate communication and collaboration when students haven’t done group work in forever? For many teachers, the 2021 school year has left them feeling like first year teachers again, because students have forgotten how to engage with the in-person classroom experience. This workshop will offer tips, exercises, and activities specific to building ensemble from the ground up, adaptation suggestions when you have to social distance, and discussion opportunities. You are not alone!
