  • Achieve Life Skills Remote and Hybrid Guidance Document

“The Life Skills titles are very easy to transition from in the classroom instruction to online instruction, using Google Classroom. I was able to use the information and format it to reach all of my learners, while still being interactive and checking for comprehension. Even without working on these skills in the classroom, the online format helped to enforce the skills learned, while being at home during the stay-at-home order.”

Pre/Post Tests Options

  • If your students DON’T have online access, Education Associates provides the hard copy file and you can include it in your take home packets.
  • If students DO have online access you can do what Brook did.

She dropped our Pre-Post test directly into GOOGLE FORMS to create an online version. Super easy and convenient, because now she has the data automatically at her fingertips.

Take a look at the original and online test!

The on-going site license is offered on a building-wide basis. However, Education Associates has relaxed the site license agreement during this pandemic time to support educators at home:

  • Allowing educators to use our curriculum with students at home.
  • Helping minimize the digital divide, we are also offering the ability for educators to duplicate our curriculum for take-home packets for those students with limited internet access.
  • Store all files for students on your Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or even DropBox.
  • Create individual folders for students to make it easier to individualize assignments and retrieve completed work
  • Provide parents with a short training session on what to expect and how to support their child.

Blended Model
When working with a Blended model, you can use your SYNCHRONOUS time with students to introduce a new unit using our FIRST LOOK Power Points, or even begin to model a new activity. THEN you can leave those files in your shared folder so that students (and parents) can access independently for review and repetition.

 

Use SYNCHRONOUS class time to use the Power Points provided to:

  • Introduce a new unit using the FIRST LOOK
  • Model a new activity
  • Discuss next steps for independent work
  • Provide access to these same files for independent review during ASYNCHRONOUS instructional time

Use ASYNCHRONOUS instructional time to:

  • If your students DO NOT have access to devices or Internet, they do not have to miss out on the Power Points. You can still print them and distribute. 
  • Save Paper by printing PowerPoints in handout mode, to include multiple slides on one piece of paper
  • Provide access to these same files used during ASYNCHRONOUS instructional time for independent review
