Learning Beyond the Classroom
Starting March 18, the Waldorf School of Orange County launched Learning Beyond the Classroom online curriculum for all students. Parents or students will sign into the online platform each morning and receive instructions, resources, and lessons from their teachers. In the wake of recent school closures and social distancing, this educational approach gives us the opportunity to practice and inspire learning, courage, and joy in new ways. While it may look different from usual, online lesson delivery is our reality for school during the coming weeks. Our faculty is excited about the possibilities and committed to continuing an engaging education for all students.
As with any new program, we ask for your patience as we address any glitches. We have carefully developed schedules, instructional plans, and remote class management to best support students and parents. We are prepared to receive and evaluate feedback from faculty, students, and parents and adjust as needed.
WSOC will deliver an online curriculum to all students on two platforms, primarily:
High School students also may use additional platforms.
Grades 7-8 and WSOC High School students were assigned a Google email account when they were enrolled and can use this account to access daily lesson plans. Students in early childhood through grade 6 have been assigned a new Google account. New account login details will be emailed to parents. Each parent or student will be required to sign in using the student’s Google account to gain access to the full G Suite and to view lessons and class pages.
All students need the following resources at home:
All students will receive a weekly overview for their program or class. Daily updates will be posted by grade school and high school teachers, as well as information about daily assignments or other expectations. Parents (or age-appropriate students) will be expected to sign into their Google account daily and follow instructions from their teacher.
