Tips for Supporting Student Engagement in Remote and Hybrid Learning Environments
A new infographic from REL Mid-Atlantic and the New Jersey Department of Education can help educators promote and maintain student engagement in remote and hybrid learning environments. Most schools moved to fully or partially remote instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic. The infographic reviews critical factors related to instructional delivery, staffing and professional development, extracurricular activities, technology access and use, family engagement, and social and emotional learning.

The 2021 edition of the Italian Intensive Summer Program for HS students is slated to take place in an “al fresco” version, leveraging the beautiful outdoor spaces of the Montclair State University campus, in accordance with current COVID-related guidelines.
We are currently collecting interest among students and families through a survey due April 20 (see Google Form). We would appreciate if you can circulate this announcement through your schools' lists and social media. We understand this is spring break, but we thought that this would be a better time for everybody to think about the summer without the pressure coming from school-related commitments.
We are very excited at the idea of offering the program again after last year's hiatus, and look forward to having students of Italian on the Montclair State University campus!

This is a reminder that "Aztec Chocolate in Sicily: An Online Cooking Lesson with Annalisa Pompeo" IS HAPPENING NOW!
Date Time: Apr 19, 2021 11:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Join from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device:
When Sicilian photographer Ferdinando Scianna visited Oaxaca and experienced how chocolate was made based on an Aztec recipe, he claimed he felt right at home. A mirror of that experience is available to visitors from Mexico in the Sicilian town of Modica, where chocolate is also made following that very ancient technique.
On Mon. April 19 (11am EST, 17 in Italy) join us for the virtual event "Aztec Chocolate in Sicily" to discover one of the fascinating transnational routes of cultural cross-pollination created by the Spanish Empire and its legacy... in a chocolate bar. Chef Annalisa Pompeo will guide us through the preparation of bars with different flavors, from chili pepper to cinnamon, after chocolatier Pierpaolo Ruta walks us through the history of this preparation and its unconventional meaning in today's Made in Italy market.
The event is part of the NEH project "Memoria Presente: The Common Spanish Legacy in Italian and Latin American Cultures" and the COIL video project in collaboration with the University of Palermo.

I hope that this email finds you well. We are writing to ask you to participate in a research study titled, “Teacher Preparedness in Addressing Cyberbullying: Impact of Stress, Self-Efficacy, and COVID-19.” The purpose of this study is to learn about how the COVID-19 pandemic has been a source of stress for teachers and understand teachers’ experiences with remote learning. This study will also investigate teachers’ perception of cyberbullying and how remote learning may have impacted cyber-bullying at school.
In order to understand these issues, we are asking for teachers working in public middle and high schools (5-12 grades) to complete a brief survey. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. Your participation in this survey is voluntary and your responses will be anonymous. If you decide to participate, you will have the option to include your email address at the end of the survey to receive a $5 gift card to Amazon, Target, Walmart, or Starbucks to thank you for your participation in this study. You must complete at least 80% of survey items in order to receive a gift card.
This study has been approved by the UBSTUDY00004949 and the MSU IRB-FY20-21-1970.
