Teachers and school district administrators throughout the U.S. and world are facing an uncertain 2020-21 school year. Between rapidly changing COVID-19 infection rates and debates on how to balance reopening schools with public health concerns, it’s hard to know which learning formats will be available, let which ones will be most effective or require the least additional teacher training.
One learning format that you can count on is Yeti Academy. From the designers of Typing Agent, our web-based STEM modules for 3rd-9th grade classes are designed to engage students with a variety of learning styles and function fully in any classroom environment, whether in-person or remote. Best of all, Yeti is designed with educators in mind and includes all the teaching resources you could ever need.
We believe Yeti is a good fit for every school!
Middle School STEM Social Distancing Requirements
During social distancing, class projects, teacher supervision, and social interactions cannot happen the same way they did in pre-pandemic classrooms. However, there are still some teaching options that can work well regardless of social distancing, including web-based learning programs.
Yeti Academy’s online STEM modules can help your school adapt to changing social distancing requirements. Our curriculum is designed to integrate seamlessly with traditional classrooms, remote learning environments, and any hybrid combination your school may adapt. Whatever happens this year, your school will be prepared.
Yeti also offers opportunities for student collaboration on virtual teams, allows for teacher-student communication, fosters positive student interaction, and provides tools for teachers to gauge how students are feeling about performance. With Yeti, your school can continue to provide opportunities for healthy communication and nurture students’ emotional well being.
Save Time On Finding STEM Teacher Resources
The Yeti team has a deep understanding of STEM teachers’ needs. We know how much time it takes to plan lessons, create slideshows, and come up with class activities, so we include all the teaching resources you will need in one place. Our goal is to reduce teachers’ workload as much as possible.
Each learning module is prepared by a highly accredited curriculum designer with years of STEM teaching experience. Teachers are supplied with slideshows, activities, lesson plans, tests, discussion guides, and other resources that can be printed or used in their electronic format. We’ve worked hard to make these resources easy to navigate, but if you need help, the Yeti Success Team is here to provide live tech support Monday-Friday 7:30 am to 4:00 pm PST.
We’ve also included plenty of reporting options for educators to use. Teachers can see student progress, see how much time they spend on lessons, and show reports to parents.
Our extensive and easy-to-navigate teacher resources are what set Yeti apart.
