Remote Learning Plan
Below is a breakdown of my remote learning plan and expectations. Please note that this plan can change depending on the schedule for the year. If we move into a hybrid school year, students can expect a slight change in the curriculum plan and the classroom expectations. I will always communicate schedule and curriculum changes with my students.
Creating a Drama Space at home
I know every one has a different learning space at home. I will be thinking about the unique spaces of my students while I create my lessons. Being an apartment resident myself, I know that space can be hard to find! All you will need for Drama Class is a place to sit and view your digital device and some floor space that the student can sit or stand in. Make sure you have enough space to do some small movements. To test if your space is a good fit for drama class is to sit or stand and swing your arms back and forth and then kick your legs to the front and then to the side and back. If the space is still tight, I can make accommodations to the movements during the class and/or the student can adjust the movements throughout the lesson to fit their space. We will be flexible so that everyone can participate!
Attendance and Google meets
Students are expected to show up to drama class at their scheduled time each day. I understand that technical issues will occur as well as other obstacles when learning and working virtually. I will always happily welcome students into class and try to accommodate everyone. If I notice that tardies and absences are a continuous problem, I will reach out to the student's parent/guardian to try and troubleshoot any issues to assist the student.
If internet access is interrupted for any reason, I will communicate with students via their Google Classroom when internet is restored.
During our GoogleMeets Class I ask student to follow the rules below:
Students will be graded on the following:
Ms. Metz'S Virtual Learning introductions
K-2nd REMOTE LEARNING VIDEO
3rd-5th REMOTE LEARNING VIDEO
6th-8th REMOTE LEARNING VIDEO
What to expect in a virtual Drama Class
A typical drama class will be divided into synchronous and asynchronous class time.
During synchronous class time students will participate in live teaching through Google Meets. During this time students will participate in welcoming activities, drama warm ups, breathing exercises, and movements games. Students will learn about drama vocabulary, acting skills, theatre techniques and styles through story dramas and projects. We will complete our time by going over the concepts covered during our lesson and end with a closing activity or discussion.
During asynchronous time students will work independently or in small groups. They will be creating stories, reading plays, brainstorming ideas for an ongoing project, preparing a performance or piece for our next live class time, completing an exit ticket/worksheet, practicing lines, or filming a performance on FlipGrid. Throughout this time I will be available in our GoogleMeets link to answer questions, re-teach concepts, work with small groups and be available for all assistance from students and/or parents.
