The Monarch Method
How to Use a Monarch Unit

  • Register for a course on the Monarch website. Scroll to the bottom of the Home Page to see the courses we are offering, organized by age group.

Please note: Your students must also register for the same course. It is best if they register before the first session. Your students will need to bring their own tablet or laptop to class in order to read the course material and follow along with you. Your students should also use a notebook for the course.


  • Complete the lessons in order. Each Unit will consist of Five Stages. The Five Stages of a Unit usually are covered in 10-14 sessions. Do not skip any part of the Unit to allow your students to get the full experience. 

  • Share your feedback (and student work) on the course discussion board after you teach a lesson.

Take photos of the great work you’re doing and share on the WhatsApp group. We would love to see your projects, games, and displays. Tag us @monarchacademy_ on Instagram, so we can feature your group!

How to Prepare a Monarch Session

To prepare for the first session of a Unit:

  • Read over and understand the entire Unit from Stages 1 to 5 to understand the trajectory of the lessons.

  • Start with a brief icebreaker to set the tone for the year. Do not spend too much time on this as the students will get to know each other over the course of the Unit. For further details, please see Establishing a Good Rapport below

Please note: The best way to prepare is to 

over-prepare for every session

If the session should take 2 hours, 

plan for 3 hours of content and activities and even be prepared to go into the next lesson. The main goal is for students to 

never have downtime 

and be engaged in learning and 

positive socializing for the 

duration of the entire session.


To prepare for each following session:

    • Review the lesson and how it fits into the unit. Over–prepare lesson content and activities. 

      • Read stage descriptions and instructions.

      • Collect all materials needed for activities, including any printouts.

  • Practice the delivery of the lesson and the execution of the activities so that it rolls off your tongue and you are confident in each step. For further suggestions, please see Teaching & Mentoring Best Practices below.

  • Communicate clearly with the Parent Admin Committee in regard to any issues that arise in which you need their support. If there are any changes in scheduling, make sure you give notice well in advance. 

  • Communicate prior to class with the Parent WhatsApp group about any logistics or materials the students will need to bring. You will see in the units that we often mention a list of props, or other items that may be readily available (from the students to bring) to make for a more effective and engaging session.

  • Set up the meeting space for lessons and activities by arriving 10-15 minutes early.

  • Take attendance at every session to make sure participation is recorded and registration is up to date. Check-up on students who are absent with a phone call or message after the class. 

  • Use the meeting space respectfully and ensure your group cleans up after themselves.

  • Send a summary after each class. Include the lesson you taught, any tasks to be completed before the next meeting, and pictures of activities. This should be on the same day, and at most within 24 hours. 

Establish and maintain a professional code of conduct and handle disciplinary issues tactfully.
