Guidelines and Tips for Teaching at EduMEE 

Here’s a collection of tips to help you get the most from EduMEE, and to be a great member of the EduMEE  community. 

Offering Classes    

  • Offer classes based on the Next Generation Standards and Project-Based Learning methods. 
  • Offering several part-time classes is a great way to introduce yourself to families. 
  • Observe EduMEE’s class content policy. 
  • Set expectations – let the parents and students know exactly what they’re getting. 
  • Respond to parent and student inquiries promptly. 
  • Don’t over-schedule yourself! Remember that classes will go better if you plan a break between hours of classes, and enough flexibility to reschedule classes when illness or other interruptions occur. 

Teaching Classes 

  • Practice using Minecraft: EE, Microsoft Teams, and practice your classes so you’ll deliver a great live class experience. 
  • Run live meetings in a fixed location with a reliable internet connection. Have a professional, kid-friendly background, and have good lighting (when you use video). 
  • Start and end on time.  In case the lesson goes quicker than expected, have extra material ready. 
  • In the first meeting with a new group, set behavior expectations, and have the students introduce themselves. 
  • Manage classroom behavior.  Don’t let individual students disrupt or dominate a meeting. 
  • If you need to cancel the class, give the parent advance warning and cancel at least 1 day in advance.  
  • Make classes as interactive as possible. 
  • If you’ll miss a class meeting, give advance notice, and offer a make-up session. For classes running for 8+ weeks, schedule a makeup session as part of the schedule. 

Working with parents and students 

  • Be kind, professional, and respectful. 
  • Keep communication and transactions on EduMEE school email, Minecraft chat, and EduMEE associated Microsoft Teams.  
  • Adapt your classes to the needs of the enrolled students. Accommodate special needs to the extent you are able. 
  • Provide a fair and positive experience for students. 

Working with EduMEE 

  • Consult the EduMEE staff about our policies; other teachers may not be up-to-date. 
  • Tell EduMEE Staff about any incidents, whether in class or out of class. Learn more about your role in student Safety and Privacy. 
  • Share questions, ideas, and constructive criticism.
