Lessons and assignments will be shared with students via Schoology and will be submitted through Kami.
Kami is a chrome extension that can be accessed through Schoology as long as a student is logged into their AAPS google account. Kami allows for students to complete assignments without having to use a printer.
Students will provide evidence of learning through the submission of assignments. The teacher will provide quality feedback and guidance to students and families on assignment submissions via video through Kami.
In addition, teachers will host regular drop-in hours and scheduling sessions with individual and small groups as needed 4 days per week.
Students will participate in a discussion based assessment via Zoom during the third and sixth week of the program. These conferences are scheduled at a mutually convenient time and are required.
There will be 2 Reading Goals shared per week. To support these reading goals, students will engage in interactive lessons with a fiction and nonfiction book. Each book will be utilized for two lessons, and will focus on strategies that support weekly reading goals. Students will independently practice using these strategies with books of their choice and then submit evidence of learning.
Teachers will utilize one of the core district math tools, Dreambox. Tasks will be assigned to students to meet their individual learning goals and needs. Students will monitor their own lesson progress with Kami Stickers on a goal setting page. When a student has met their lesson goals for the week they will submit their goal setting page like the one below.
