A number of classes are offered as year-long linear classes to allow students in certain key areas of learning to experience yearlong teaching opportunities. Linear teaching classes are divided into both AM and PM offerings and are only offered during FLEX times. Classes that are offered as linear classes include: most AP classes, ELC, Yearbook and Skills.
If you have a linear class your teacher will email you with your schedule.
X1 to X6 courses
The Grade 8 Applied Skills Rotation (ADST) is displayed on a student schedule as an X1-X6 course. These courses will not take place until Quarter 4 – D2(P4) (April 27-June 29), more information will follow on how these classes will be run later in the year.
During each quarter of the new teaching model every student with a full timetable of 8 classes will have one remote learning opportunity and one direct face to face (F2F) learning opportunity. The remote learning classes will alternate (see rotation schedule: Student F2F Rotation Calendar). During the remote learning classes teachers will be connecting with their classes through the Microsoft Teams Classroom as they did during the Spring Term. Remote learning will be “asynchronous” with teachers required to make a minimum of three direct contacts with students each week. Contacts can include:
- Asynchronous lessons recorded and posted on Microsoft Teams
- Individual project work
- Individual assignments
- Group projects and teamwork
As an important supplement to this remote teaching model staff will have the flexibility and opportunity to supplement the “remote learning” experience for students during daily “flex time” when teachers will be able to invite students into the school for one on one support and/or additional learning opportunities as needed.
