Blended learning model at jh

Blended Learning Model at JH

  • Lessons are due every day

    • Instead of repeating myself over and over again I have the students watch me on YouTube

    • They can control the pace, pause, and rewind

  • I make a computer lab available after school for all 60…

    • But most do the work on their spare or at home

    • Usually less than a dozen show up


The math

The Math

  • There are 2 blocks (60 students) so that would add up to a teacher commitment of 10 blocks per week

    • Same for the students

  • This means I spend half a block after school each day or 2.5 blocks a week in the lab

    • Students also spend 2.5 blocks per week


The math cont

The Math Cont’

  • After the lab time, I am left with 7.5 teaching blocks per week

  • I take the group of 60 and split them into 3 groups of 20

  • Each section gets 2.5 blocks of tutorial time with me per week

    • The missing half of their instructional time
