Grade-level Schedules for Remote Learning
Hello families! School will look a little different this year, but we're here to help you through it! No matter what grade level your child is in, their school day will include synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
Synchronous Instruction- means the teacher is teaching to a group of students live. Synchronous learning occurs when teachers and students are working together at the same time. In other words, the instruction by the teacher and the learning by the student occur simultaneously. This could include, but is not limited to, direct instruction, groups, independent work, conferencing, etc.
Asynchronous Instruction- is a general term used to describe forms of education, instruction, and learning that do not occur in the same place or at the same time. Asynchronous instruction can be in the form of pre-recorded webinars, discussion boards, assignments in Schoology, a paper and pencil assignment, videos to watch, or personalized learning. In other words, the instruction by the teacher and the learning by the student do not occur at the same time.
Especially in the virtual learning schedules, you will see time for office hours. Office hours are times for families and students to speak with teachers regarding their assignments and progress in the class. This can also be a time for teachers to call families to check-in with them on the progress of their child, discuss any engagement issues or anything else related to the child, the class, and virtual learning. A school administrator may direct a teacher to call on students that are struggling with virtual learning, or work towards outreach to all students over a given amount of time.
