Regional and district staff ensure Binational Teachers are assigned a host family, receive their pay and reimbursements, arrive at their designated school sites, and receive the support they need to successfully teach in their summer placements.
 
SUMMER DISTANCE LEARNING

SUMMER DISTANCE LEARNING

In response to COVID-19 and the need for Migrant Distance Learning programs, Region 2 will provide four Distance Learning Services in the summer of 2020.
 
ELA Makerspace Distance Learning
To address the needs of migrant students in a distance-learning manner, Region 2 will contract with Butte County Office of Education Future Educator Support (FES) Program to provide English Language Arts (ELA) academic intervention through ELA and STEM instruction to Region 2 Migratory Students in grades 2 – 7. Eight academies (grades 2-3; 4-5; 6-7) will be held online and will provide up to 40 hours of intensive supplementary ELA instruction. The academies will consist of 15 weekdays during the month of July 2020.  Each class will meet for 2 hours each day. Students will read a variety of expository texts including newspaper articles, scientific journals and nonfiction readers that are descriptive, provide an insight into cause and effect or allow for students a moment of comparison. In addition, students will have daily opportunities to work with teachers outside their academic classes. Student tutoring hours will be from 2:30-4:30 to support areas of need and parent engagement.
 
ELA Academy
The Summer ELA Distance Learning Academy provides students in grades 3 – 6 with 15 days of ELA instruction. The focus of this academy is on writing. Three Instructional Program Specialists will provide 1.5 hours of online instructional sessions 5 days per week for 3 weeks in July 2020. Each student will be provided an At-home/Online Author Kit from “Write Brain.”  Working online, guided by teachers from a distance, students produce unique short stories using the colorful Story Card prompts and Story Mats in their Author’s Kits and write complete storybooks.  Students will increase their writing ability through daily practice writing sentences and paragraphs according to prompts. Illustrated booklets are designed to peak student interest in creating and writing the storyline in the book. At the end of the service, students will be able to upload their work and in 3-5 weeks, receive a copy of the book they created to share with their families. Through the finished books, students will be able to show pride and ownership, as they will be the authors of their books. 
 
Math Academy
The Summer Math Academy provides 3rd grade students with 15 days of math instruction by certificated teachers. Teachers will work with students via Zoom and use BrainPop and Time4Learning. Lessons will focus on one concept per day starting with a math warm-up activity, review of the previous day’s learning and homework assignment. Teachers will then present a lesson, which could include a video or teacher modeling and relate the math concept to students’ daily lives.  Students will work together to solve problems, and finally complete independent work.  Students will be divided into smaller break out rooms for more individualized instruction and practice. Students will have homework assignments to complete independently before the next class. 
 
Summer Reading Tutorial
Classified staff will work with students twice a week via phone to read together and complete selected portions of California Kids Learn! For three weeks during the summer (15 days), students will review key skills based on the California State Common Core Standards for their last school year, helping close the gap in their learning with the support of Family Support Paraprofessionals.
