Design

Captivate: In this activity, Jeff engages students with a challenge that stretches their creativity and develops their ability to sketch.

Drama

Care: This task gave insights into the circumstances and the mental and emotional states of students. As a class, they realized that they were having a shared experience and were not alone. They noticed that though there were feelings of anxiousness, fear or uncertainty, there were also a lot of things to be grateful for.

 

EAL

Clarify: In this DX post, Lloyd provides clear, detailed instructions for students and gives them an estimate of how much time these tasks should take them.

 

Music

ClarifyIn this short Loom screencast, Tony analyzes a student exemplar of the assignment. Unpacking a model or exemplar for the students helps make the expectations of the assignment very clear and is an effective way to make sure that you’re teaching, not simply assigning work.

Humanities

Care/Captivate: In these videos/screencasts, Nikki & Krista connect with their students in a personal way by making videos that include their faces and voices, rather than just typing out instructions. This makes the e-learning feel less isolating for the students. They also keep the videos short enough that students won’t get overwhelmed and lose focus.

Math

Captivate: Lucas regularly posts optional opportunities for his students to synthesize and extend their learning, giving them choice on the level of challenge they feel ready to take on. Most of these opportunities are from outside resources. As some students might be in challenging situations, offering this choice to students is an effective way to differentiate and give them more ownership over their learning without adding a lot of stress for either teacher or students.

PE and Health

Collaborate/Care: In this team, the teachers make one workout video and share it across multiple sections of the grade 6 course, so as not to duplicate the work involved in creating the content. In the video and the teachers’ comments, they show care for their students’ well-being by explaining how physical activity contributes to physical and mental well-being. Having the video made by their teacher makes it feel more personal which helps students feel less isolated.

Science

Captivate: In this DX post, Mona & Matt get around the lack of hands-on materials available to their students by using an online resource. This resource lets students play around with virtual circuits, dragging and dropping them to experiment with the results. Using this resource is an effective way to engage students in inquiry and spark their interest in the topic!

Spanish

Clarify/Captivate/Confer: In this video, peek into Kevin’s Spanish 1 class. He provides a clear task (class agenda) and captivates students via the bilingualism and flexibility of the task.  Students share their work not only with their teachers but also with each other.

Routines

Care/Confer: One way to do set new routines and expectations is to ensure students have a dedicated learning space with necessary materials, free of distractions. To set up this routine, Tom shared his own learning space in a Seesaw post and asked students to share their learning spaces in the comments.

Clarify: In this flexible learning environment, making expectations, learning objectives, and the “schedule” clear will support students in building habits and developing a routine. For 4SM, Scott created a slideshow for the day before posting his Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop Lessons. The slideshow includes the Content and Language Objectives for the day. He adds reminders, directions, and sentence frames to help his students be successful.

Math

Care/Clarify: In this lesson, Julie reteaches a concept for her students who need extra practice/support using a combination of visuals, text, and audio.

Captivate/Confer/Consolidate: In this lesson, the grade 4 team uses pictures to engage students and encourages them to discuss their learning with their parents. They then helps students solidify their learning by creatively telling their teacher everything they know about fractions.

Reader’s Workshop

Challenge: In this lesson, Renee revisits Pointer Power and encourages her Kinder students to use this strategy to support their reading.

Clarify/Challenge/Consolidate: After explaining how to describe characters, Veronika challenges students to consolidate their learning by sharing a picture of their stop and jot. View lesson.

Clarify: In this lesson, Erin offers structure and support via both a template and detailed, step-by-step directions.

Visual Arts

Care/Captivate/Clarify: The ES Visual Arts team has been making short videos for each day of eLearning. These videos have demonstrated care by making personalizing learning for students through being silly and having fun. They captivate students because they are short, interesting, and funny. They help to clarify by making the learning explicit through clear content & language objectives and directions. The team has also been leaving voice recorded comments for each student response, which helps students feel connected.
