Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!
Below you will see an outline of the instruction document I have posted to Google Classroom for this, our first official week of Trimester 3 via distance learning. Students should start by carefully reading the instructions. I have attempted to build in a lot of different choices for students so they can best manage their time and plan according to the resources that are available to them.
I have to admit, I was worried about attempting this whole “distance learning” stuff, but after some planning, I am actually incredibly excited! I’m excited to see you all again, even if just through Zoom, and I am excited to hear from you again. Your creativity and humor tend to brighten my day, so I’m looking forward to having a bit more entertainment besides Netflix and the news!
To start out our first official week of distance learning, I merely want to do some review of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which is what we would have done if we had school the week before Spring Break. This week, I will give you some videos to watch and an article or two to check out that will review some of the basics, both history and how the Bill of Rights play out in the modern world. Then, to show your learning, you will choose from three different “art projects”. Lastly, we will close out the week with a Quizizz and/or a Kahoot. I have given suggestions as to what day(s) you might work on these things, but you can decide for yourself how best to split up the time.
And please remember, this is just as new to me as it is to you. I will be doing my best to make instructions clear and easy to follow, activities somewhat interesting, and not give you too much work, but I’m probably not going to be super good at it at first, so ask me questions, give me kind feedback, and remember we are all in this together.
