Zoom is another common video conference tool that many teachers use to host virtual classes and to provide small-group or 1-1 support to students. As a day to day substitute teacher, you may be given a link to join regularly scheduled classes. As a long-term substitute, you may need to create meetings and invite your students. Your district may give you a district email, but if they don’t, you’ll need to create a professional gmail address to use for all virtual activities.
The “Strategy Backpack” is an opportunity to download resources, guidance, or working documents to support your future journey as a substitute teacher. To leverage these additional resources, create a Strategy Backpack folder in your Google Drive or on your hard drive. Review the materials provided, and save the information you find compelling in your personal folder. Strategy Backpack resources are completely optional to download or complete.
