Abbott Elementary TV Series Study

Join us for our summer TV series study on Abbott Elementary: an award-winning TV series about a group of dedicated teachers navigating the challenges of an underfunded urban school. This captivating, mockumentary-style show offers a unique lens into the world of education, providing valuable insights and sparking meaningful discussion. Akin to a book study, this online course offers both self-paced activities and discussions as well as multiple opportunities to connect with fellow educators over Zoom. To participate, you will need a subscription to Hulu, HBO Max, or another service that streams Season 1 of Abbott Elementary.

Please note that this course runs from June 19th to August 11th, 2023. SCECHs will be awarded at the conclusion of the course.

In this course, you will:

  • Identify strategies that connect ideas from the TV series to the classroom.
  • Reflect on thematic ideas to compare concepts from the series to your own classroom experiences.
  • Collaborate with other educators to share ideas and strategies.
