Tips for Modifying Lessons for Distanced and Remote Learners!
Each week, we provide two new lesson opportunities. Some will be very easy to adapt to a distanced classroom setting while others may require a bit more thinking. Remember, you can skip any lessons you choose and still provide your students with a great mission experience. Even under normal conditions, it is rare that a class does EVERY lesson associated with a mission, so be kind to yourselves. I'll add to this page weekly so you can find adaptation ideas for the lessons you DO choose to do.
