Half empty classrooms? “Non-teaching days?” Assemblies? Field Trips? There are a lot of things that cut into our teaching time. There are those days that you are directed not to “teach” new material due to religious holidays. There are other days when half your students might be absent, for example on April 28th, “take our daughters and sons to work day.” These are days that technology tools can be very valuable and more accessible. Teachers at the Mt. Olive Middle School are combining some classes across time and space running a SCAN session called “School: Take your child to work day policy.” (http://www.tregoed.org/teachers/new-to-scan.html) TregoED is offering the scenario FREE through May 6th. What do you do on days when students are missing or new instruction is prohibited?
