A+ Talks

Our online A+ Talks series returns for the 2023-24 school year with something for everyone! The theme this year is A+rtful Engagement. We will explore fun activities and resources throughout the year to artfully engage students in every PK-12 classroom. In addition to our traditional, one-hour A+ Talks sessions, this year we are offering two A+ Double Talks on Saturdays in October and January which will allow educators to participate in back-to-back sessions for more in-depth learning. Attend one session or both!

A+ Talks are open to all A+ educators and administrators. A Certificate of Attendance is provided after each session upon submission of a reflection form.

  • A+ Talks are from 4:30-5:30 p.m. ET. 
  • A+ Double Talks are from 9:30-10:45 a.m. and 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. (participants may attend one or both sessions; each session will offer unique activities and resources)

Deadline to register is noon on the day of the A+ Talks or noon the day before A+ Double Talks.

*2024 A+ Talks session links will open in December.
