Day 1: Direct instruction
- Set clear expectations so that students and their parents can plan their week ahead. Students should be aware of learning intentions and success criteria.
- Explicit teaching delivery. Set a timetable for live delivery if applicable. Consider recording it for sharing so that students can access it any time.
- Introduce topics that are part of your program. Provide stimulus material to your students.
- Propose guiding questions. You could deliver of these questions using chat technology such as MS Teams or Google Classroom. Encourage dialogue with and between students to promote higher-order thinking.
- Explain learning activities clearly. Structure them into discrete tasks. MS Teams and Google Classroom are the department provided tools that can help deliver this learning online. Consider the needs of your school community when delivering these tasks.
- Analyse participation to help you determine attendance. Contact students or parents and carers if you have any concerns with participation.
