Remote Learning Information

I hope you're all safe and sound at home with family.    As you're aware, the district has transitioned to e-learning for the week before and the week after spring break.   Please reach out if you have any questions that I don't address here.  I'm scheduled to be available via email on remote learning days from 9-11am, however, I will check email regularly during remote learning days.    

1.   When can I expect LA/Reading lessons?
LA/reading lessons will be posted daily on Google Classroom by 8:30 am (if not the evening before).  

2.   How will lessons be accessed?
You  will be able to access  LA/reading lessons daily via Google Classroom.   All work that needs to be submitted will be submitted electronically via Google Classroom.     Additionally, I'll post a summary of what needs to be done each day here on the class website.      If there are any issues, please let me know.   

3.   What is the format/focus of the lessons?
The goal is to continue to cover the priority standards we address in class in as meaningful a way as possible.    

4.   What needs to be submitted each day?   
Along with the daily lesson directions there will be a section specifically focusing on daily submission requirements.   Requirements will vary depending on the task for the day.  

5.    How can I be reached?
Although the department's email hours are 9-11, I can be reached via email throughout the day.   I'll make sure to check regularly.
