Distance Learning Modules
The SJCOE developed distance learning modules in response to the need to create effective, engaging, and supportive learning environments in the virtual classroom. The five modules provide guidance in designing a virtual classroom, pedagogy shifts, lesson planning frameworks, ways to address unfinished learning, and how to provide language support during designated ELD time. The modules were offered virtually and recorded.
