Teach to One at ASU Prep: 30 Days Into Remote Blended Learning

April 17, 2020 Teach to One

Today marks one month of remote blended learning at ASU Prep South Phoenix Intermediate School. The 7th and 8th graders who filled these classrooms only weeks ago have switched over to remote blended learning with Teach to One 360 — and they’re taking no shortcuts to achievement.

When remote learning for many students nationwide has been pared down to what is essentially homework all day, ASU Prep South Phoenix continues to operate in real time, with each class period starting and ending exactly as they would under normal circumstances. Math Director Felicia Oliver and teachers Kristin Ramos and Abraham Rosengard have tackled this challenge with creativity, energy, and TTO.

Oliver, Ramos, and Rosengard have adapted their lesson planning, delivery, and engagement strategies, but they have changed nothing about the academic expectations for their students. They made the decision to use several Teach to One learning modalities, including Live Investigation—teacher-led instruction over video—as well as Independent Learning and Tasks, which are multi-day lessons that require students to solve complex problems.

With an unchanged schedule and a relentless math department, students at ASU Prep South Phoenix can continue on their personalized learning journey without diminishing their long-term goals.
