This model of classwork, participation, and projects applies to core classes, as arts classes are generally double periods for 10-12th grades and will reflect an adjusted number of assigned tasks and assessments. 

► Assignments will be given for students to complete over a period allotted by teachers and will be supported in both live and virtual classrooms. 

► Each assignment will have various instructional components and activities that align to the targeted instructional expectations. 

► Each cycle will have 10 assignments; each marking period will have two cycles (20 assignments per class, per marking period) 

► Assignments for each class will be labeled with the cycle and assignment number. 

► Remote learners (Cohort D) are paired with Cohort A students (DOE/UFT Agreement Permitting) in each class through Zoom or Google Meets for assistance. We will rotate each marking period.  

► When a student arrives to class, they will be asked to open the laptop and begin working on the assigned task. 

► Students will then be formatively assessed on their knowledge of the assignments.  

► Students will work cohesively in classes, through the use of break-out rooms with their peers and support from their teachers.

► Students that need additional assistance will be scheduled for office hours with their teacher at a later date.
