Dear PS 101 Families-
While we still have many questions, I do have an answer to a question everyone has been asking…
Will teachers be teaching LIVE when they are Remotely teaching this school year?
The answer is YES. We were told by the Dept. of Education that teachers will be teaching live everyday during remote teaching.
Additionally, there will be a daily schedule posted for parents to know which subject is being taught at what time of the day so you can ensure your child follows a schedule similar to when they are physically in the school building.
We are still awaiting details as to how much of the day will be live teaching versus students doing work. In a regular school day, a teacher teaches a lesson in front of the class and then gives students time to work on the follow-up assignment independently or in groups. After, a period of time, students return to the front of the room and review the work with the teacher, prior to continuing onto the next subject. I anticipate (but cannot confirm) that instruction will be similar remotely.
Hope this helps give you some certainty around the instruction you can expect this year.
