DISTANCE LEARNING EXPECTATION FOR GRADE 1
Distance Learning involves planned online or teacher-prepared lessons that students complete when away from the physical school building. Using one-to-one devices, Jordan Public Schools (JPS) recognizes that education can continue even when students and teachers are not in the same location. Along with emphasizing the value of learning, using Distance Learning encourages character growth in the areas of self-sufficiency, adaptability, and perseverance.
All students will participate in a daily Morning Meeting to set routines and focus on social and emotional learning. Students will receive daily synchronous reading and math instruction to prioritize student learning in the core areas. Science and Social Studies lessons will be completed asynchronously via Google Classroom and/or SeeSaw with project-based instruction being the focus. Students will participate in weekly specials through a recorded asynchronous lesson with feedback to guide learning provided. Students will receive regular narrative feedback, via Zoom meetings or through a virtual platform such as SeeSaw or Google Classroom.
