  • The online classroom looks and functions differently than the traditional, in-person classroom. In the online classroom, students take on a new level of responsibility for their learning. Students become responsible for planning out their weekly school schedule and executing it. I will provide weekly pacing calendars that include upcoming DUE/ CLOSE dates, however, there will not be additional reminders for students to submit work. As the course is asynchronous, students need to communicate with me when they have concerns or questions. Periodic open Zoom hours are offered and students are highly encouraged to attend.

          1. You can check in on your student’s progress frequently using your own password.
          2. You can see the assignments (not just the grades) that students are being asked to do.
          3. You will receive all the communications that I send to students through the Canvas messaging system. This will be the only way that I send group messages to students and parents.
          4. You can set your notifications so my messages go through Canvas, but end up in your personal email. You can reply to me from your personal email and it will go back into Canvas to me.  You will not need to worry about checking in Canvas for messages after you set this up.
      • Print the DUE/ CLOSE/ END date calendar (found on the course homepage) and keep handy so that IF your student misses a DUE date, you can help them to get their missing work in by the CLOSE date and still receive points.
