Visual Meetings Starting on April 13, 2020

Hello everyone,

on Monday, April 13th, I will begin holding visual meetings via Google Hangout for all my classes. Each meeting will last for 30 minutes and occur once every week until the end of the school year. This is a chance for us all to connect for learning while remaining socially distant. We will be using this space to collaborate with one another, discuss thoughts and ideas related to our work, and interact.

Please adhere to the following during our meeting so that we can get through our meeting smoothly and effectively.

  1. All student should mute microphones during instruction. When a question is asked, I will choose which student should answer, at which point that student’s microphone is unmuted. I can’t teach effectively with multiple microphones on at once.
  2. Please be respectful to your fellow classmates, including myself, during our meeting. This means: wait to be called on to speak, respond to peers and teachers questions, comments or concerns in a way so as to give and elicit positive and purposeful responses, etc.
  3. When our meeting has come to an end, you are to exit immediately. I will and should be the last individual to leave the meeting.

Note: parents are welcome to join the class meeting when possible. The presence of an authoritative adult is sometimes enough to keep students engaged and attentive. This might be exceptionally difficult for many parents given the present circumstances of our country, but if it is possible your presence would be greatly helpful and appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Meetings will take place at the following times, each week. Each meeting is for a different class I teach, not all. Pay attention to the class name beside the time. When we are scheduled to meet, I will post the meeting code on your class’s page in my iBlog 5-10 minutes prior.

I look forward to meeting with you all.

Take care!

Mrs. Al Raishouni
