Well, it is that time of year again. The halls, classrooms, and lockers are empty. As you read this article, I am actually out of the office on vacation. Though I will be back in the office next week, I will not be posting as much due to the summer break.
This will help me re-charge the batteries before I begin preparing our devices for our 1:1 roll out next school year.
I will be re-posting some of the "Greatest Hits" articles from last school year for the rest of this week, possibly throughout the summer as well. In the meantime, check out this article on preventing student brain drain over the summer.
Can Summer Slide Be Prevented?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/21/summer-learning-loss-study_n_3391594.html
A recently released survey from the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) confirms that teachers spend a significant amount of time re-teaching material due to summer learning loss.
The NSLA works with school districts to enact summer learning programs around the country. However, if your child will not be attending one, here are three easy ways to prevent summer brain drain in your house:
- Start a family book club.
- Make visiting the library part of your summer plan.
- Recruit a little planner.
Hi! Thanks for sharing your perception and thoughts here. That's right teachers are not only re teaching because of summer learning loss but also because the problem arises in virtual teaching. Everyone is in a dilemma whether life is going to normal as before or not. I see and observe kids are really missing their classmates, playground, teachers, swings, library, and school lockers in Australia. I hope good days ahead as before.ReplyDelete
