Re: [Phys-L] Philly schools forbid graded ‘remote instruction’ during shutdown for equity concerns

Labs are difficult without the proper equipment at home.

Projects -- video a lesson or build something (e.g., musical instrument) to
show your understanding. Individualized and easy to grade.

I'm not sure kids will be returning for the rest of the school year...

I believe AP exams will be done remotely and with a modified curriculum.

As posted (probably on physlrnr-l) some labs are possible. Perhaps that's
what you (AL) include in projects. As far as tests “open book”, perhaps
not as “real” tests, but another learning method, like end of chapter

Remote work not graded, I agree is good. What they do remotely will be
reflected in their work when they return, which should be stressed in the
remote work assignments.

More importantly, you can't do traditional tests fairly with kids at home
as they have access to notes, friends, and the Internet. I will have them
do individual projects and video lessons so they can show me what they
know. Kids also can't really do labs at home.
