I would like to clarify a few things regarding i-Learn assignments and grading:
UPDATE on i-Learn VIDEOS: I removed the video for this week because too many people are having trouble viewing it. I think the district still has YouTube blocked for students, so I will see if they can change that before next week. That means you only have 2 assignments to do this week by Friday at midnight!
UPDATE on i-Learn POWER POINT ASSIGNMENTS: If you see a red notice at the end of your slide show that says you “did not achieve pass grade”, PLEASE IGNORE THAT! As long as you answered all of the questions and got them correct then you are fine! I can see on my end that you completed it and that you received 100% and I will give you the full 10 formative points in the grade book. Thank you for being patient during this time!
UPDATE: ALL ASSIGNMENTS DONE ONLINE THROUGH i-LEARN SINCE SCHOOL CLOSED WILL NOT COUNT TOWARD YOUR CURRENT REPORT CARD GRADE. These assignments will count toward our next card marking which begins on March 30th, 2020. After 3-30-20, you will be able to see these new grades on student connect. Until then, just know that if you completed an assignment on i-Learn and answered all of the questions correctly, then you received the full 10 points. And as long as you complete all of the assignments, you will have an A+ when next card marking begins and grades start over. So keep up the good work! 🙂
ASSIGNMENTS: Assignments will be posted on i-Learn every Monday at 8:00 am and will be available until 11:59 pm on Friday. After midnight, those assignments will no longer be available and you will receive a zero if they are not complete.
Each week I will post 2-3 assignments. The assignments are posted along with detailed directions, so everyone should have an easy time understanding what to do. Once you have achieved 100% on each assignment then you are finished for the week. New assignments will be posted the next Monday. You have unlimited attempts to reach 100%, so don’t stress, just do your best!
GRADING: At the end of each week, I will check your assignments and post grades to the grade book. 100% completion of an assignment equals 10/10 formative points added to the grade book. Any assignments not completed by Friday at 11:59 pm (the week they are due) will receive a zero. THESE GRADES WILL NOT SHOW UP IN STUDENT CONNECT UNTIL OUR NEXT CARD MARKING BEINGS ON 3-30-20.
REMEMBER: I-Learn is not the same as Google Classroom. You will find I-Learn on our district’s main page or by using the link at the top. Use your regular school email and password to log-in.
NO NEED TO ENTER AN ENROLLMENT CODE!!! We used I-Learn to take our midterm exam, so everyone is already enrolled in my class. If you don’t see my class right away after logging in, scroll down and you will see it.
PROJECTS: If you haven’t shared your project with me already, whether it’s your “Place” project (researching a U.S. city) or our last project on “The 5 Themes of Geography” (researching a continent), please share it with me or email it to me as soon as you are done. I am still grading them– I will post the grades as soon as I’m done. This will be part of your report card grade so make sure you turn it in before March 27th! Share it with: Mandy Thomas email@example.com
REPORT CARDS: This card marking will still end on March 27th as planned. Your grade will be based on what we did in class BEFORE school closed for the Coronavirus. That includes the last 2 projects we did in class. The online work we are doing now will go toward your next report card grade (card marking #4). If you have any missing work to turn in for our current card marking, please take a picture of your assignment and email the picture to me. Make sure you include your name when sending me an email please! ALL MISSING WORK IS DUE BY MARCH 27TH!
