Asynchronous vs Synchronous
Asynchronous assignments may include:
Pre Work: students reading texts, watching videos, listening to podcasts, exploring teacher-curated resources online, and taking notes.
Post Work: like additional review and practice, research and exploration, or reflection that build on the work students did in synchronous sessions.
Asynchronous learning may be more difficult for some students
If a student has trouble being self-disciplined consider the following tips:
Find a quiet place with minimal distractions
Follow a strict schedule on Asynchronous classes.
Check into each class and write down each required task
Create a to do list
Use the google calendar to organize your assignments
Pace yourself and schedule breaks
Do not procrastinate
Reflect on assignments and reach out to teachers with questions
Consider reaching out to other students with questions
