  • To enhance classroom dialogue, we will, as of January 11, be participating as a class by revealing the student but not their environment.  Students know how to use the background screen to shield their privacy. Hopefully this will encourage interaction in classroom discussions and help them engage in work in a timely manner.  Anyone who does not know how to place a screen behind them on a computer will ask me and I will go over the procedure  in class.  As of January 11. I hope our active participation in class will help students to feel more connected to our learning environment.

  • Submit documentary to Teams Lesson #6. All fact sheets were classwork.  The fact sheets were due  the day we watched the videos in class and will no longer be accepted. Students must have a subject for the documentary entered by January 15 and completed video by January 25.
