Capstone Project Title
The research question being addressed in this project is, how do teachers successfully facilitate the movement back and forth between different methods of instruction for students? This question is answered in the paper and then the project. The project consists of a professional development workshop that is five 120 minute sessions. The first chapter introduces the topic with discussing teaching experiences before the pandemic, COVID-19 and distance learning, and teaching experiences after the pandemic. The second chapter is the literature review that looks at defining student success (academic, social, and mental/emotional), distance learning and COVID-19, and transitions in method of instruction. The third chapter is the project description that covers the setting/audience, timeline, and assessment. The final chapter is a reflection that discusses major learnings, connecting with the literature, project limitations, benefits and future projects that connect with the research topic. In conclusion, it was found that the teacher steps to help successfully facilitate the movement in different methods of instruction are to increase communication, strategic planning, reflection and designing a safe and collaborative environment. Student steps to help transition between methods of instruction include having grit, staying positive, being organized, asking for help, setting goals and being willing to explore new technologies.
