Making The Switch To Teaching High School Virtually: What Teachers Need To Know
You want to be sure that your students achieve this year, but it can be hard to know what to expect as a high school teacher when your district has yet to solidify re-opening plans. While it's possible that you may return to your classroom at some point this year, it's a good idea to start planning for the possibility that you'll be teaching high school virtually for at least some of the coming year.
When you're teaching online high school courses, one of the best ways to help yourself make the transition is to create a space in your home that is solely for teaching. Talk with your family about the times that you'll be interacting with your class, as well as the time that you'll need to yourself in order to lesson and provide feedback to the students in your online high school courses. While it can be tempting to carry your computer around and teach from different places in your home, it's easier to be productive when you work in the space place each day.
Just like a normal school day, be sure to take some prep time. It's easy to get caught up in constantly responding to students, but it's key to take some time to focus on planning your online high school courses for the day ahead.
