9203_31904_3.png Traditional learning
As classroom sizes continue to grow, the work load increases and the time you have to teach each lesson seems to get shorter. Often students struggle with the work in the classroom and have to put in hours of additional work at home just to understand the concept. Other students find the material easy to grasp, then become bored or distracted while you help the other students.
9203_31904_3.png FirstClass ED is a resource provider
FirstClass ED provides a classroom area called Resources. You can use this area to provide extra materials for students, such as
• tutorials to help students grasp concepts
• web sites where they can find more information
• practice work
• suggested readings
• advanced work to provide more of a challenge
• extra credit work
• guidelines for parents to help their children.
This example shows how a teacher uses the Resources area of his class to provide additional information to students.
