3 Principles for Planning
Consider the priority of the lesson (standards and learning intentions)
Organize in Google Classroom - send home handouts
Keep it simple
3 Community Builders
Meet at the Door
Get Ready for the Day
It's ok to wait to let students into Zoom
Maybe post a recording in Google Classroom with a daily greeting and something to ponder while Zoomies wait to be let in
Let Zoomies into Zoom when you are ready to start your day
Share with families that Zoomies need to be ready a few minutes early but might not be let in until you are ready
3 Structures for Learning
Whole-Group - Live instruction or Flipped experiences like videos, games, pre-formative assessments, etc.
Small-Group - live in person or online
Asynchronous Time - independent time for students to work and ask for guidance
