Elementary Fall Distance Learning Plan
Secondary Fall Distance Learning Plan
Synchronous vs Asynchronous
  • Suggestions to Support Diverse Learners:
    • Elementary: Presentation of content can be kept to 5-10 minute chunks then 2 minutes of students SWIRLing (Speaking, Writing, Interacting, Reading, Listening)
    • Secondary:  Presentation of content can be kept to a 10 minutes chunks then 2 minutes of students SWIRLing (Speaking, Writing, Interacting, Reading, Listening)
  • As developmentally appropriate, it is recommended that content be delivered through asynchronous videos (flipped classroom) so that synchronous time can be used to make meaning of content with peers.
  • Weekly opportunities for student-to-student collaboration/discussion/peer feedback.
    • UDL Note:  Allow students a choice on how to interact.  Synchronous is recommended, but offer an asynchronous option.
Synchronous Either Asynchronous
  • Breakout rooms to complete a task/ discussion/ problem/ give feedback to each other's work (How to use/how to pre-assign)
  • Whole group zoom discussions
    • Encourage students use of chat box/speaking over mic for engagement
  • Assign video/articles prior to Zoom/ Google Meet, then collaborate
  • Participate in discussions boards during assigned time period
