Get at least 10 of your students to sign up and complete a 5-10 question mission warm–up by April 14 and we'll thank you with $100 of classroom funding (via DonorsChoose.org) to spend on the books, supplies, technology, or field trip that you most want for your students.
The signup window for this program closed on April 14.
If you then help those 10+ students get through at least 10% of the yearlong math mission (a metric that is customized for each student and easy to monitor) by June 5, we'll thank you with an additional $400 of classroom funding (via DonorsChoose.org) to spend on the resources you most want for your students.
After you register your email on this page, there will be a button that takes you to Khan Academy. Go there and select “Teachers, start here” to begin. To be eligible for the rewards, you must sign up on Khan Academy using the same email address you used to register here.
The Teacher Opportunity Program will send you an email in April confirming that you have signed up with Khan Academy and are part of this program. If you don't receive the email by April 27, contact us.
After you sign up, you'll be prompted to create your first class. Enter a name, like “Mrs. Doe's 5th Graders.” Then, you’ll be taken to a screen where you can select a mission.
To be eligible for this program, you must teach students in grades 3–7, and you must select the math mission appropriate for your students’ grade level (e.g. if you teach fifth grade, your fifth graders need to work through the fifth grade math mission).
Invite your students to your class via the email invite form on Khan Academy. To be part of this program, your students must not previously have signed up on Khan Academy. Have your students check their email, accept your coach request, and create an account. If your students don't have their own email addresses, you can create an account for them. Once they create an account and select an avatar, help them navigate to the mission by selecting the notification bell in the top right corner of the screen.
Your students will be asked to complete an initial mission warm-up and can then start working through their mission. You can track their progress by clicking “student progress” in your coach account. Look specifically at any of the bars that say “20%,” or more (“30%,”, “40%,”, “50%,” etc.) and add up the number of students who have completed these skills.
We'll confirm that your students completed the mission warm-up and send a $100 classroom funding credit via DonorsChoose.org to the email you use to register on this page and on Khan Academy in June.
If at least 10 of your students get through 10% or more of the yearlong math mission, we'll add an additional $400 to the classroom funding credit DonorsChoose.org will email you in June. You’re only eligible for this additional $400 reward if you had 10+ students create new Khan Academy accounts by the April 14 deadline above.
You can spend the funding credit on books, technology, field trips, or any other resources that you want for your students. Funding is offered on a first come, first served basis to the first 500 teachers who accomplish the steps above.
This opportunity is for 3rd–7th grade public school teachers who use Edmodo and who have not previously signed up on Khan Academy.
A mission is simply a way on Khan Academy to help learners focus on content that is most meaningful to them. Each math mission on Khan Academy provides complete coverage of a particular grade level or subject. For more information, check out this article on Khan Academy.
In order to be eligible for this program, you will need your students to be working and making progress in their grade-level mission (i.e., if you are a 4th grade teacher, your students will need to make progress in Khan Academy's 4th grade mission). However, the great thing about Khan Academy is that learners can also access content outside of their grade-level mission if they need extra support or want to accelerate ahead!
The mission warm-up will be your students' first experience of Khan Academy once they have selected their grade-level mission. The mission warm-up will ask students to answer a few math problems. That information will help Khan Academy's analytics system to know where it can help the students. The students will always have the option to say “I haven't learned this yet,” if it is a skill that they are unfamiliar with.
The easiest way to see whether you have 10 students that have achieved 10% or more of mission-level skills is to look at your class histogram. You can navigate there easily by going to your coach homepage and then clicking “student progress” for your classes. The Y-axis of the histogram shows you how many students have completed what % of the class mission.
Note: the 10+ students who achieve 10%+ mission level skills must be the same students who created new accounts in your class and completed their warm-ups by the April 14 deadline.
Mission foundations will provide a quick review of prerequisites and help check a learners' preparedness for grade- or subject-level material.
Khan Academy has created a great online support resource that helps you learn how to get your class started on Khan Academy and shares best practices. This is a great place to learn more about all the great learner and coach tools that are available as well as to understand the nuts and bolts of how to get your class started! You can find these resources by going to: khanacademy.org/coach-res.
If you have a problem with Khan Academy, go to their Help Center. You can type in your questions or report bugs that you are finding as you work on Khan Academy.
