Teacher Created Materials Packet Guidelines
In EPISD@Home we are committed to providing a high quality and personalized learning approach that will enable learners to excel through empowering experiences that are predictable, flexible and relevant. We are now expanding our menu of learning resources to ensure students can access options that best prepare them for success in the upcoming year.
Based on the conversations between Leadership and Academics the following are the guidelines to be followed concerning the packet:
- The contents of the packet will be aligned with the remaining Standards
- The packet will level the playing field for students that don’t currently have access to online materials
- The Core & Dual Language Facilitators as well as the Special Education Instructional Support Specialist and Facilitators of Active Learning will align the packet with the remaining Standards, and will embed the packet into the sample lessons they are already creating
Feedback will be provided as follows:
- Students that have previously logged on are encouraged to continue to do so; however, if they choose not to, they will still be expected to complete the assigned pages in the packet and upload pictures of completed work so the teacher can provide feedback in Schoology
- Students that have never logged on will be assigned pages based on the Standards identified in the Curriculum at A Glance documents which list the Focus Standards for the remainder of the year. Teachers will be responsible for communicating instruction with parents and providing/receiving feedback as well as determining progress through their usual means of communication. Example: Class Dojo, Remind, Seesaw, Email, Text and/or Call
- If the parent has a phone, students can be asked to take a picture of the assignment and send it to the teacher through one of these forms of communication
- Teachers will also continue to provide instruction in the areas of Science and Social Studies, with lesson activities that are done through paper/pencil (examples can be found in the sample lesson plans) whether via videoconferencing or through the other modes of communication, as listed above.
