Here is a copy of this week’s work list. A copy is ALSO posted in Google Classroom, and there is one in iLearn as well. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ac-2i4xQhLwhrXk-JxD5FbHKaWrnk0A-8l50Hwo_I5U/edit?usp=sharing
All 6th graders will be reading “The Crossover” by Kwame Alexander for the next few weeks. A PDF (copy you can read on an electronic device) is in iLEARN; I will also post a copy in Google Classroom. ALL WORK RELATED TO THIS NOVEL WILL BE POSTED IN iLEARN. We will discuss the readings during our live lessons
Live lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 10 am and 1 pm. Students only need to attend TWO of the four sessions offered each week. It is important that students do the reading for our novels BEFORE the live lessons, so we can use this time to discuss.
The district is working on improving Big Blue Button, the meetings feature in iLearn. We are trying out best this week to test the platform and see where the issues are.
Students should try to review the questions posted in Classroom before our meets. Answering them on a google doc will keep them organized, and enable our discussion to move along smoothly. GOOGLE DOCS DO NOT HAVE TO BE SUBMITTED!!!
Advisory will use their link to Padlet to answer this week’s question. It is my hope that we can use BBB to chat by Friday morning.
I am available via Remind or email from 8 am to 4 p.m. After 4 p.m., I promise you will receive an answer to your question within 24 hours.
Please add yourselves to our classroom Remind account! I will be sending important information throughout the year via Remind text. Use the link: rmd.at/h8cchc OR text the message @h8cchc to 831-613-1863
