Ugh! I actually started to read this, and I have a terrible feeling this school year is going to be FUBAR...
Its clear these folks putting together haven't brought in resources like folks doing home school or companies doing online distance learning already. Dare I say experts in distance learning.
Attempting to maintain a brick and mortar structure in a virtual world is their first mistake
Every single minute is meted out as though all the kids are in one building, when instead they should emphasize teachers "teaching" less and focus on securing the content and making it electronically available for kids to access, then assigning them readings and correspondence and then holding office hours and teach the kids to teach themselves.
Trying to keep their model in place for the next school year while trying to keep their construct is going to set all the kids back!
The subjects blocks should be two hours each with no more than five hours on instruction. So Monday = Math 2 hours of instruction (Reading the math textbook and doing the sample exercises) and 2 hours of student working on their own doing the exercises at the end of the chapter, Rinse repeat for each subject each day, Tuesday = Science, Wednesday = History, and Thursday = English/Language Arts, Friday Grammar and Spelling and make up work. And provide a 2 hour block in the afternoon to cover arts and crafts, exercise, are some other creative outlet. KISS Principle applies...
