Many of us are getting ready for Distance Learning. We know that both students and teachers reap the rewards when best practices are used. Therefore, I decided to write down some Best Practices for Distance Learning that I wanted to remember and engage in. I thought I would share my list with you!
My Best Practices in Distance Learning
· Explicitly teach expectations and engagement
· Describe expectations for online participation, communication, and etiquette
· Get students into the habit of participating
· Make online learning as interactive as possible
· Balance synchronous and asynchronous learning
· Give students choices
· Engage students with a variety of ways to learn
· Change your background each week

Need an ELD pacing guide?
This one is free!
As many of you know, I am a K-5 ELD teacher in Ashland, Oregon. For many years I did workshops throughout my state for ELD teachers. Many ELD teachers asked me for a pacing guide so I made this.
Each month has a combination of ELD units and/or grammar components essential for English learners. Again choose some or all of what I have here. Feel free to mix it up to suit you!
♥If I have a product that contains all or parts of the language I teach during that month I have listed it. All resource images are click-able links for your convenience. Just click on the image you want to see and it will take you to my TPT store.♥ I use these products according to language level more than grade level. Each column represents a language level. The column has language grammar, forms and functions I teach for that level. Under the column heading I list products I use to teach those language components. Some of the products may have a grade level on it, but I have used it at that language level based on the language I am teaching students at that level.
