Remote Learning at CHC

Cape Henry Collegiate strives to maintain the expectations and momentum of learning in each grade level and class while the physical campus is closed. Teaching and learning goals are focused around maintaining connectivity between teachers and students in an academic environment as well as ensuring progress is made around content area knowledge and skills while also being mindful of screen time. To that end, the CHC Remote Learning Plan consists of both synchronous and asynchronous teaching and learning expectations.

Synchronous Learning refers to a learning event in which a group of students are engaging in learning at the same time (face to face learning). This is where direct instruction occurs and where students have the opportunity to connect in a learning environment with the teacher and other students. The goal of the synchronous learning block is to engage students with the content and skills as well as with one another. This time may also be used to establish expectations around asynchronous learning periods.

Asynchronous Learning allows students complete work on their own time. Students are given a timeframe to complete work and the teacher may also set expectations for students to connect to their class at least once or twice. Asynchronous learning also plays a critical role in the progress and success of students.
