Black River Remote - A Learning Experience For Us All
Your Black River teachers are working hard to tailor their BR-curricular content to provide a robust remote educational experience that tries to equate with seeing your child in person.
In this whole remote learning endeavor, the objective is still to challenge with meaningful learning, but not to overwhelm. Especially in the first part of our remote learning period, that balance of challenge-but-not-overwhelm will take a great deal of fine-tuning. Feedback from our students will be an integral part of the process.
Every learner is different. Some students will find school more manageable when dealing with the Google world of Classroom, Calendar, and Meet; other students will have a hard time navigating this educational experience and will need what some might consider "extra time" just to put a solid plan in place and start completing the work their teachers expect of them. Therefore, if you or your student think that there seems to be more "extra time" than usual, then double-check your Google Calendar, Classrooms, and home-planning agenda to make sure that every task and its deadline are accounted for.
We hope that this remote learning endeavor will balance the right amount of time necessary to be productive and successful with all academic work, provide for "brain-rest" breaks, and allow for the longer chunks of time that are not education-screen-dependent while helping to keep the positive mental and physical wellness of your child at the center of everything we do.
