Virtual Schools

Differentiation belongs in classes for students with identified learning problems. It belongs in honors classes. It belongs in whatever we think of as a “typical” class. Otherwise, we subscribe to the idea that all a teacher needs to do is “pitch” a lesson and let it fall where it may. Students need academic coaching to achieve their potential just as members of a swim team or basketball team do–and for the same reason.

  1. I am familiar with virtual schools,and actually know someone who is a teacher in a virtual classroom. She seems to enjoy working from home.Sounds different, but I think I could get used to it.
