In a normal summer my students would choose between attending an in person camp workshop or a practice packet which included recorded video lessons or for an extra fee they could do both. But as you know, with COVID-19, this isn’t a normal summer…
I knew many of my families and I needed a Zoom break, so I decided to provide my practice workshop in a recorded format that they would be able to access on their own time over the summer break. The added benefit to this is they would be able to revisit and review as often as they would like. In addition, as thank for being the rock star families that they have been, I decided to also include a set of summer video lessons at no extra charge.
I had some teachers ask if I could share exactly how I went about organizing my summer program. I am happy to oblige and put together this video walking you through a behind the scenes of how I organized everything. Divided into two parts (one video), I will share how I organized my summer video lessons and my summer practice workshop.
