Do you need to reach out to someone in the know?

If you could speak with a current OER Project teacher, what might you ask them?

  • I would like to know how to better pace WHP 1200 to Present. I'm struggling with the number of assignments, grading, and the student's lack of prior foundational knowledge. I also have two ELL-only sections and need guidance with reaching those students as well.

  • Hi  , have you tried the WHP Course Plan for New Jersey? It may help you with your pacing. The best advice I received when I started teaching OER Project courses was to "do less, well." Be selective in the assignments and activities you do, allowing them to delve into the content. Adding  ,   and to this conversation. They may have additional advice on using course materials with ELL students.

    Be sure to reach out if you have any questions!

  • I have the course plan for NJ and I can't cram that all in. Also, I  like the "do less, well" advice but I worry if I do less I won't be able to meet all of my target standards. Most if not all of my students lack foundational knowledge, writing, and computer literacy skills to follow the NJ course plan.
