Online Curriculum Outline

 

Implementation Plan

 

    My implementation plan will be as straightforward as I can make it. We already have a fully functioning google classroom setup for all classes. My students will take home their textbooks and notebooks. Each day I will post assignments on my google classroom page that will be due for the day or week. I will have the ability to post google slide presentations as well as any supplemental material I may need. I can upload any document via a pdf that my entire class can access. Assignments can be created and turned in via the classroom and everything is time stamped so I know exactly when students completed assignments. I will be relying on larger projects such as papers, essays and DBQs for assessment. I can also set up traditional assessments through google classroom where the students will log on and take all at a certain time. I will make myself available at designated times each morning and afternoon where I will respond to questions and emails. I will also be creating discussion topics for each of my classes on a weekly basis where every student will be required to respond to the question in 100-150 words. They will also have to respond to at least two of their classmates' responses  for credit.

As part of the project, students will engage in online and print source research using both primary and secondary resources. Students will create a presentation to teach the entire class. Be prepared to not only explain the details of the topic but also explain it in the larger context of the war; considering political, economic, and/or social significance. Students will hone oral presentation skills and learn to identify relevant resources.
