An Opportunity Culture Vignette Series
Scott Nolt [pdf] | Caitlyn Gironda [coming soon] | Video [coming soon]
In their respective American History and Precalculus classes, Scott Nolt and Caitlyn Gironda pioneered blended-learning classes in their North Carolina district. Nolt and Gironda extended their reach to more students by teaching two groups of students during the same class period—when one group was in class with the teacher, the other worked online from home, switching the next day. Despite receiving less in-class time with their teachers, Nolt and Gironda’s students showed strong student growth, and learned other crucial skills, including independent learning and time management. In these vignettes and accompanying video, they explain how they structure their classes, mistakes and changes they made along the way, plus advice for others considering similar classes.
