Dear Students,

Over the upcoming weeks you will be offered self-guided learning opportunities; below is what you need to know about these lessons:

  • The lessons will review topics that we have covered throughout the year so far.
  • These learning opportunities will be posted in two places, my class website and Microsoft Teams.
  • These learning opportunities will be located under the Assignments section of our Microsoft Teams and the Distance Learning tab of my webpage
  • These lessons will take place via website called Nearpod. If you do not have access to a computer, Nearpod has an app which you can use on phones and tablets.
  • These lessons will take place every Thursday from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm when you can ask me questions. However, you may complete the lessons at your own pace at times other than these specified hours.
  • I will provide a link to the lesson and a code for you to use in order to access the self-guided lesson. I will also be available to support you via Microsoft Teams every Thursday from 10:30-12:00.
  • Additionally, I will hold our office hours every Friday between 1:30 pm -3:00 pm if you need additional help on these self-guided lessons or need help with missing work.
  • Lessons are optional; however, I am committed to your learning and look forward to working with you on these assignments.

If you have any questions or need further assistance please contact me
