Question: What are the advantages of choosing the Dare to Care virtual program over the in-person program?
Affordability. By eliminating travel costs, the annual cost of the school-wide virtual program is less than half the cost of in-person delivery.
Year-Long Access. Our year-long, school-wide license will allow you to view all program modules at your convenience and revisit the content as often as you like. Any new teacher, staff member or parent who joins you during the year can access the program at no additional charge.
Depth of Content. Because all content doesn’t have to be delivered within a one-day assembly, we have expanded some of the most critical topics. Our student modules not only include an introduction and animated lesson, they also include an activity to anchor learning and enhance engagement.
Question: What advance preparation is required of teachers? None. Teachers simply log in to our portal with their school’s unique access code, select the next student module and press “play.” Each teacher has their own dashboard, so they can see at a glance where they are in the program. Our resource portal contains classroom posters for downloading as well as other supportive materials.
Question: Is there a recommended schedule for rolling out the program?
Scheduling is completely within your discretion and control, but we find some school-wide coordination is highly effective. For the student modules, you might select a month when you ask teachers to complete all the modules on a schedule of their choosing. Alternatively, you might ask teachers to show new modules on a certain day of the week and call it Dare to Care time so as to show school-wide support. For the parent modules, a hybrid approach works well. Parents are offered the opportunity to watch modules at their convenience or attend a virtual or in-person parent night where they can watch the content in a group and ask questions. For the professional development content, most schools will show a module after a staff meeting, followed by discussion, or they will devote a professional development day to the program and show all three modules.
Question: Does a Grade 3 student need to have seen the K-2 content before they watch the Grade 3 modules?
While you will see the greatest results and impact by sharing the Dare to Care program in your school each year, it is not necessary to catch students up on modules prior to their current grade-level.
