An effective emergency response requires you to quickly identify the problem, minimize the damage (mitigation) and find resolution (peace of mind – return to normalcy).
Covid-19 is the current emergency disrupting student learning. Covid-19 has caused great uncertainty nationwide. The CDC lacks data sufficient to advise how long schools should be closed. State and local officials have warned that schools may be forced to close anywhere from 2 weeks to 9 months or longer as the pandemic progresses.
Effective distance learning is key. Place your students in front of their own teachers each day, regardless of school closures. Simulate a structured school day. Implement standards-based instruction (Not simply worksheets.). Track and monitor evidence of student learning in real-time.
Students master the academic content for their grade level without disruption. Teaching staff engage daily in the teaching & learning cycle. School administrators engage daily in relevant instructional leadership. Seamless transition back into classroom learning when schools reopen.
Here’s how you can ensure that student learning continues even when the schoolhouse doors close.
The H.E.L.P.® Plan B deploys the powerful tools of G-Suite, Google Classroom and the Mastery Tracker to provide remote instruction meticulously designed to improve teaching and learning and intentionally move students to mastery.
The protocol provides for:
- Live teacher instruction via Google Hangouts Meet video-conferencing
- Standards-based instruction using Google Classroom
- Daily class schedules at set times to maintain structure
- Student – teacher interaction in real-time
- Student progress monitoring using the Mastery Tracker
- Principal instructional leadership
Rapidly mobilize teaching staff and administrators to virtually recreate the familiar learning environment. Large groups of teachers can be quickly trained state-wide by grade level or content department. Edify Consulting will provide training to enable your teachers to:
- Lesson plan and create instructional content in e-learning formats
- Align lessons to your state standards and District pacing guides
- Use Google Hangouts Meet to provide direct instruction and modeling
- Use Google Classroom to post instructional content (e.g., slides, videos, practice sheets, etc.)
- Monitor student work in real-time
- Use the Mastery Tracker to collect student progress data and daily attendance
Distance learning is often perceived as independent, adaptive learning and “drill & practice” software. Video game-like graphics are used so students will “play” their way to learning. The Plan B Protocol ensures our students engage in standards-based instruction, provided by their own teacher and ensuring targeted learning outcomes. Interactive instruction is provided in the virtual classroom at the same time each day, Monday to Friday, so that the daily structure, so critical for children, is maintained.
