Distance Learning Guidance: Project Lead The Way Launch (Elementary School)

Highlights

  • In a full distance learning model, students will meet with their teachers in real-time, following their school schedule, to receive direct instruction. This support will allow them to master the content for this course.
  • Professional development will be provided for teachers to adapt traditional classroom instruction to an online model at the systemic professional development day on August 26, 2020. Follow-up and additional training sessions regarding use of online platforms will be available.
  • Classes will follow the students’ elementary school schedules.

Programmatic Support

Students will meet with their teachers in real-time to receive direct instruction. They will also be able to access recordings of lessons in order to revisit content they would like to review.

  • The Department of Career and Technical Education has gathered additional resources to assist teachers in transitioning to online instruction. (See Resources for Distance Learning.)
  • The Program Coordinator and Instructional Specialist will be available to assist teachers in adapting their lessons and instructional strategies for online instruction.
  • Supplies will be provided to students.

Program and Scheduling Considerations

  • Students will need to attend their classes as scheduled, be active participants, and complete all classwork, projects, and formative and summative assessments to experience success exploring a range of STEM modules.
  • Teachers are expected to use class time for whole group and small group instruction as well as to provide group and independent classwork, and project-based learning activities.
