To replace some of the many in-person events we have had to cancel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, pgEd is offering a series of online teacher workshops. In the upcoming weeks we will present several of our lesson plans. To try and accommodate various schedules, we will run each workshop twice (see schedule below).
