Remote Learning Information
Hello Spartans, I miss you! As we transition to remote learning starting April 7th, I want to share with you information specific to my classroom as well as the school-wide expectations during this time. Know that I miss seeing your faces in class each day and hope you and your families are well. We will get through this together.
Remote learning for my class will happen through Google Classroom. All assignments, announcements and important information will be posted there. All students are already in Google Classroom, as we have been using it since August, but on the off-chance you need the classroom codes again I will post them below. Parents and guardians, you can have your student add you as a ‘guardian’ on Google Classroom so that you have access and get notifications regarding assignments.
Google Classroom Codes:
Period 1: 6iktn3r
Period 2: 7eeote3
Period 3: b7isal5
Period 4: 443twgz
We will also be utilizing NoRedInk for grammar instruction, ActivelyLearn for close reading, and Turnitin.com for essay submission. These assignments will be posted and linked in the Google classroom. For ActivelyLearn and NoRedInk, you do not need an additional sign-in, remember to just click “sign in with Google.” For Turnitin.com you will need to set up an account using your school email if you have not already and use the class codes I will post below. If you are having issues signing into any of these sites, let me know and I can help you trouble-shoot. (I suggest testing this now rather than waiting until you have an assignment due.)

We will begin on Tuesday, April 7th following the schedule below. For each class period I will be hosting a LIVE class via Google Meets for the first 15 minutes of class to walk you through the online learning procedures and expectations (and to see your lovely faces).
I will post the link to access the Google Meeting to each individual Google Classroom section the morning of April 7th. Because we are on a block schedule, some students may not be meeting as a class until Wednesday, April 8th.
