Microsoft Teams is the Live Conferencing Tool Used in Broward
Teachers will have a link on their Canvas courses that will redirect students to Microsoft Teams. Each day, the teacher will check in with each student, take attendance in Pinnacle, and go over the expectations and lesson for the day. Your student needs to be on time to each class, every day (please refer to the bell schedule).
Face to Face Interaction:
Students will have some form of live interaction with their teacher every class period. Classes will mirror the physical lesson structure which has time for group collaboration and independent practice. Depending on the teaching model the teacher employs for the day, students may interact with the teacher through live lecture, small group practice, one on one assessment, socratic seminar, etc. Teachers have the autonomy to craft their lesson structure to best suit the demands of their lesson or project.
In order for students to have a safe space in their virtual classroom, we highly discourage parents and families from sitting in on their child's live sessions. We want students to feel as connected to a physical classroom as possible, and develop a child's self-advocacy and autonomy in the classroom space is part of the important development process.
