Señora Chávez-Franco saying Hola Amigo

I hope you-all had a good summer. Here is some information for my class and Edsel Ford.

Starting September 8th, teachers will hold live instruction through the Zoom platform in the afternoon. Students should plan on being live (virtually) every day from 12:00 pm – 3:10 pm – NOTE:  ATTENDANCE WILL BE TAKEN DURING ZOOM SESSIONS AND THE AUDIT POLICY APPLIES.   If students accumulate a certain number of absences- they will lose credit for that course.

Students are responsible for completing and submitting all Asynchronous Learning assignments – task completion and submission will count for student’s participation, engagement and attendance.

Morning Schedule / Asynchronous Learning: 

[A Days 4th, 5th & 6th Hour]       [B Days 1st, 2nd, 3rd Hour]

8:15 – 910

9:15 – 10:10

10:15 – 11:10

LUNCH 11:15 – 11:55

Afternoon Schedule / Synchronous / Zoom Meetings:  

[A Days 1st, 2nd, 3rd Hour]          [B Days 4th, 5th & 6th Hour] 

12:00 – 1:00

1:05 – 2:05

2:10 – 3:10

Make sure you go to my Schoology Course, or Edsel Ford’s main Website for the schedule for asynchronous learning (8:15 am – 11:10 am) assignments and the synchronous “live” instruction (12:00 pm – 3:10 pm) calendar from Tuesday, Sept. 8th thru Friday, Sept 18th:

  • The Asynchronous modules will be uploaded to the EFHS Back to School course in Schoology.
  • All EF students will be enrolled and assigned the modules with corresponding due dates.
  • For Spanish class your OBJECTIVE will be to become familiar with the Syllabus and Expectations for your Spanish Class.  The ASSIGNMENT this week will be to read/to look over the SYLLABUS AND EXPECTATIONS DOCUMENT that is posted in my Schoology Course. 
  • There is a lot of information in this document.  Make sure you read it and become familiar with it all.  We will talk more about this in our ZOOM MEETINGS.
    • Also, when you have Spanish during ASYNCHRONOUS learning time – you need to complete the Daily Attendance and Check-In form.  This is how I will be taking attendance for my class during asynchronous learning.
    • Please note – you cannot just fill out the Attendance form without doing the assignment for the day.  The form asks you questions about the work you did in class.
    • The links to my ZOOM meetings are the course banner that you will see posted on my UPDATES & MATERIALS page for my Courses.  Click on the Icon/button labeled Links to Zoom Meetings
This is my Banner on Schoology: 
  •  Under the banner on Schoology you will find different icons/buttons with links.
Icon/button for Attendance Form
  •  Above is the icon/button for your Attendance for my class during ASYNCHRONOUS learning.
Icon/Button for Spanish Syllabus
  •  Above is the icon/button for my Syllabus
Icon/Button for Zoom Meetings
  •  Above is the icon/button for the link to my Zoom Meetings.  Make sure you are logging in with your Dearborn Public Schools Google account.  You may have to refresh the page if you get the message that you need the password.

Make sure you take a look at the schedule posted in Schoology.

If you have any questions please send me an email, or a message on Schoology.

Looking forward to seeing you-all on Zoom.

Hasta Luego,

Señora Chávez-Franco

Enjoy Spring Break!

Hola

I hope everyone is doing well.

I cannot believe we have been “Distance Learning” for three weeks.  I am so proud of all of you that have been participating, checking-in, and doing all of the work.

I am sending a message to communicate some important information.

  • MUY IMPORTANTE/VERY IMPORTANT:  If you are in need of a CHROMEBOOK please email me – I can let our administration know and we can possibly lend you a Dearborn Public Schools’ Chromebook to use while the school buildings are closed.  Please let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  They may be distributing more Chromebooks when we return from Spring Break.
  • For MY Spanish classes — Students that were failing, or doing poorly, as of March 12, 2020 should take advantage of this time to improve, make-up missing work, retake quizzes tests, etc.   Make sure you contact me if you want to improve your grade.  We can start working on this the week of April 13th.  Especially my SENIORS – please take advantage of this opportunity!
  • Take advantage of the work I am posting in my Google Classroom.  These are great opportunities for you to have continued input of the target language.
  • After Spring Break I will continue to post Enrichment/Review and learning opportunities on Google Classroom for you-all to take advantage during the closure.
  • If you have any suggestions for things you would like to do, have me share, etc.  – please email me or send me a message via Google Classroom.
  • Spanish NHS – I received a message from the National Chapter.  They said to go ahead and induct students.   Seniors – I will let you-all know about graduation cords, etc. once I know more information.
  • DEARBORN SEAL OF BILITERACY:  As of Friday, April 3, 2020, we are being told that we should develop a plan and schedule for those seniors that have been working towards the district Seal of Biliteracy for this year.  As soon as I know more information I will share with you-all. If you were planning on working on this you should continue to work on your essay.
  • And most importantly:  Stay safe, stay healthy & relax during Spring Break. 

In Lak’Ech y Abrazos

Señora Chávez-Franco

stay healthy helpful and calm
A message for you to stay healthy, helpful & calm during the Spring Break.
