Teacher Directed Programs

A Teacher Directed online program is delivered and assessed by a teacher from the School of Hope.  Students in Grades 1-12 work from home with teachers via email, Blackboard Collaborate, instant messaging, telephone or fax.

Courses and subjects follow the Alberta Programs of study.

 

Elementary Grades 1-6:

  • Students submit work on a regular basis to the teacher, who then provides feedback to help the student recognize areas of strength and challenges in his/her work

  • Students work at their own pace

  • The teacher will individualize the courses to meet each students needs

  • Daily lessons will be provided via Blackboard Collaborate in core subjects from grades 3 to 6.  Students can join lessons for live instruction or watch recorded lessons for further instructional support.

Grades 7 and 8 – Team Teaching:

  • Students in grades 7 and 8 will work closely with two teachers at each grade level.  One of these teachers will act as their Academic Advisor.

  • Depending on the Teacher Directed optional courses selected, students in these grades may be working with additional subject specialists (ie, Music, Spanish, etc.)

  • Students may request scheduling assistance should they feel the need for more structure and supervision or find they are in need of assistance for course completion

  • Daily lessons will be provided via Blackboard Collaborate in core subjects.  Students can join the live instruction or watch recorded lessons for further instructional support.

Grades 9 to 12:

  • Grades 9-12 students are provided with a suggested schedule/time line by their subject teachers, or, in consultation with the teacher, they may establish an alternative schedule.  Live or recorded Blackboard sessions are available for core subjects.
