Science Remote Learning Plan
March - April 2020
Grades 6-8

  1. Students will be provided with three assignments per week.  These lessons will be posted on their Google Classroom account. 
  2. Each of these assignments will contain directions on how to complete each lesson on learning.amplify.com.
  3. Students can easily access this site using their OSIS number and the password: hcms. 
  4. Students will be responsible for completing each assignment by the due date provided. 
  5. Most lessons will require students to complete the lesson solely on amplify. Other lessons will require students to return to google classroom and answer a reflective question. The directions will explicitly state what the student should do for the day’s assignment. 
  6. On Thursdays’ science teachers will have office hours from 10-12 and from 2-4pm. This time will be provided for students to ask teacher clarifying questions via video conference, email, text, or by posting comments on stream in google classroom. 
  7. Every Friday, students will complete a Check for understanding (CFU) list of questions. This will allow students and teachers to monitor student learning and progression through our remote learning experience. 
  8. Lastly, weekly class chats will be organized and scheduled for students to video conference with their teachers via google meet. 
  9. Any questions, comments or concerns should be e-mailed to teachers using their @schools.nyc.gov e-mail. Students and parents can expect a response within 24 hours.
