Independent Digital Lessons are engaging experiences where students learn new content at their own pace, and then practice and demonstrate understanding. Whether you're using Zearn Math for remote learning, hybrid learning, or in-person learning, we recommend orienting kids to learning with Independent Digital Lessons. In your first week with Zearn Math, make sure to:
- Complete an Independent Digital Lesson as a whole-group, then transition students to working through each Independent Digital Lesson on their own. Teachers can model a lesson from their account by using the "Try lesson as a student" feature from the Welcome Page of a teacher account. From here, teachers can show students how to work on their "Next Up" activity and walk through each component of a digital lesson.
- Make sure students know they should use Student Notes (or scratch paper) when prompted in the Guided Practice.
- Discuss strategies for persevering through challenge like working through the Boost, referencing Student Notes, revisiting the Guided Practice, and even guessing if needed and letting the digital lesson provide help.
