NTI/2DL: Non-Traditional Instruction/Differentiated Distance Learning
Superintendent Manny Caulk often states, "Victory is in the classroom." This is still a sentiment that we at Rise STEM Academy for Girls know to be true. While the way we serve our scholars may differ from the typical in-person classrooms, we are still here to meet the needs of our Phoenix Families. Here's what your family can expect from NTI/2DL: Differentiated Distance Learning:
Schools will use a common platform (Learning Management System) to deliver instruction: Google Classroom.
Schools will implement clear communication protocols from school to home: This Website, our district website (fcps.net/rise, social media (@STEMgirlsRISE) and monthly newsletters.
Teachers will focus on new learning and growth for every scholar.
Teachers will diagnose unfinished learning to identify gaps and determine individual needs for acceleration.
Scholars will have access to grade-appropriate learning from digital curriculum programs and district adopted curricula.
Teachers will provide strong instruction by implementing a distance learning framework that includes synchronous direct instruction and asynchronous guided learning to differentiate learning and facilitate deep engagement.
Teachers will administer ongoing formative assessments with timely feedback.
Teachers will have high academic expectations for all scholars.
Scholar learning will be assessed on an ongoing basis.
Phoenix Families will receive regular documentation and reports on scholar participation, scholar mastery, and grades.
