Phase 1: Community Building
Connect with students and families using online technology (rebuild our community)The primary goal of week one is to connect with students, and create community. In doing that, we will begin to explore modes of online engagement together. Students will have work assigned to them by their teachers, in a flexible manner as we all adjust to changes in the routine. Students will have one synchronous learning experience each day, and will be provided with work in all subject areas. Synchronous learning is when students will be “live” with their teachers through mini-lessons, morning meetings, etc. Asynchronous learning is when students access their learning through taped videos, links, and assigned activities that allow for flexibility with timing.
- Introduce and familiarize students with different technologies
- Provide assignments to stimulate students
- Re-establish the idea of a routine
Phase 2: Rollout
During this week, we will implement our BankStreet@Home schedule, allowing for flexibility as we transition in. Students and teachers will establish norms and routines, and assess how they are working and need to be modified to support students. We will continue to use synchronous and asynchronous learning modalities in different configurations. Students will participate in individual check ins with teachers once/week. Google classroom will continue to be used to deliver content.
- Establish norms and routines with remote learning
- Try out synchronous and asynchronous experiences
- Engage and share work in different subject areas
- Increase synchronous times
- Evaluate the schedule and see what works and what needs to be tweaked
Phase 3: Assess and Adapt
In week 3, we will deliver our continued curriculum, aligning and adjusting content to be emergent and reflective of the experiences of students. Students and teachers will maintain a predictable and consistent schedule, ensuring daily contact and inquiry based learning. We will continue to assess and reassess the schedule, and provide instruction that meets the needs of our community as a whole.
