Request a JA Program – Elementary (K-2)

Program Implementation Options for 2020-2021

In-class programming with recorded volunteer videos: This implementation model is meant to be used when students are physically in the classroom with the teacher. Teachers can adapt the material for use in a fully remote setting. The JA kit of materials is provided to the teacher. Each of the 5 session begins with a recorded volunteer video (under 15 min) that introduces the main topics, presents key terms, and connects the material to the volunteer’s personal experiences. The teacher then facilitates the main activity in the classroom, using material provided by JA. All activities have been modified to account for social distancing in the classroom. A 15-minute teacher orientation is required.

Fully remote, with live teacher-led sessions (Available to grades K-2 beginning in January 2021): This implementation model can be used in a virtual classroom without any physical materials. Students receive all of the content in a typical JA program. Each session starts off with a pre-recorded volunteer video that introduces the main topics, presents key terms, and connects the material to the volunteer’s personal experiences. The teacher then facilitates an activity using a JA-provided slide deck and talking points. The students access a fillable pdf for each session in order to participate in the activities. A 15-minute teacher orientation is required.

Fully remote, self-guided programming: This implementation model can be used in a virtual classroom as self-guided content. The help of a caring adult may be needed for younger students. It is a condensed version of JA programming and only presents the main topics in each session. Each of the 5 sessions consists of a volunteer video (less than 15 minutes) that connects the material to the volunteer’s personal experiences, followed by an activity that can be completed at home and/or questions that can be completed and submitted to the teacher.
