Hear from our teacher
The Moodle courses are designed to be both engaging and interesting for students, and effective and easy to use for teachers. The differentiated resources feature is exceptionally helpful.
"One of the main appeals of teaching with Rosedale Academy is the fact that the course curriculum is provided for you. The Moodle courses are designed to be both engaging and interesting for students, and effective and easy to use for teachers. The differentiated resources feature is exceptionally helpful. There are tons of different videos, links and other resources that both contextualize and supplement the lessons. Also embedded in the lessons are optional campus activities. These activities are not only advantageous in advancing the students’ comprehension of the content, but they also help foster a positive learning environment.
The premade lesson plans are another indispensable organizational tool. Each plan offers a clear breakdown of how much time you should allow for each lesson or activity. This comes in super handy when you find yourself having to adapt your plan to accommodate differing students’ needs, and you need help gauging if you have time to get through a certain activity.
The plans also include a brief explanation of the purpose of each lesson element, so if you do find yourself needing to cut certain activities, you can be sure that you will still cover each learning goal sufficiently. Every plan also notes exactly what materials you will need each class, so you never find yourself stranded without a certain resource. Scrambling at the front of the class to find a set of markers is an experience you most definitely want to avoid, trust me."
