Teacher Comments: Since the shut down started I have been offering daily quia lessons for both grades in ELA - Students are accessing them and emailing me if they have questions. The general response is good, not by any means 100%, but in this difficult time I would say that students are doing their English lessons when they can, and it is important that I give them an opportunity for reading and writing every day. Quia does this in a routine that they are familiar with from their classroom. Best wishes to all in this very difficult time!

What do these "tools" mean?

At Byron Area Schools, we think of teaching in learning in 5 episodes according to the thoughtful classroom. For the purposes of out Continuity of Learning Plan, we have condense a few of those episodes, but they are:


1) Preparing for New Learning

2) Presenting New Learning

3) Applying Learning

4) Deepening and Reinforcing Learning

5) Celebrating and Reflecting on Learning


In this time, we have condense the beginning and end of this process, but the the point of including it here is so we can see that we have mechanisms for not only getting content to students, but opportunities for them to apply that content and review that content.
