Here are all of the documents you need to use to prepare for for the quiz next week.
Remember to finish:
Quiz 3 - Tuesday (ODD) Wednesday (EVEN)
You are to finish the "Why Government?" Questions in My Big Campus by Wednesday. Also, Chapter 4 Lesson 1 has been assigned in the online textbook. It will be due for all classes on Monday
Many students have been having problems with the assignment that was given to complete over the weekend in My Big Campus. I have cancelled the assignment and we will complete it in class this week. Please remember to complete any late work.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Open House: Tuesday, September 16 7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.
Progress Reports: September 18
- Open House Announcement:
Good evening parents. On Tuesday, September 16th, an Open House will be held at our school from 7:00-8:45 pm for grades 6-8. This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and receive information about our clubs, activities, academic programs, and more.
Please take advantage of this Open House activity so we can work together to maximize your child’s educational growth throughout the 2014-2015 school year.
Please remember, because of the number of parents that are expected to attend, we are requesting that you do not bring your children to Open House. There will not be enough space in the classrooms to accommodate parents and children. Also, remember that the school parking lot is reserved for staff.
I am still grading all of the work that has been assigned. It will be updated by Monday afternoon for progress reports. I will check the iCivics and Textbook reports again before upload to change any assignments from Zs to the appropriate grade. Also, please remember to link your iCivics account to my class using the class code posted here on my website.
This is just a reminder as this information was posted last week. Please use the citizenship powerpoints (PPT) from the September 2 post or the notes from the Notes section of this website. Both contain the same information. These are the same PPTs that I explained last week and reviewed again this week.
Also, If you have not finished and submitted the work for Chapter 3 Lesson 2 and 3, you need to do that as soon as possible. Also, any work left in My Big Campus needs to be submitted.
Finally, remember that you need to link you iCivics account to my class and play the assigned games through My Classes to receive credit. That is the only way I can see that you completed the games.
If you score a 65% or below on a quiz or test, I will allow you to retake that quiz. If you score higher, I will change your grade to a C. If you score between 60% and 69% on your retake, I will enter a D for the grade. If you score lower, I will let you keep the D as the higher of the two grades.
Retake days will be in my classroom, after school, on the next day after the assigned Quiz/Test day.
After the quiz, you were assigned Chapter 3 Lesson 3 in the online textbook. If you didn't finish in class, you are to finish at home. It is due by Friday this week.
Also, you are to complete Responsibility Launcher in iCivics by Tuesday, next week.
Please begin to study these PPTs. You will be tested on this information next week: WED (EVEN) THURSDAY (ODD)
This is the video to use while completing the viewing guide in My Big Campus.
In case you had trouble logging in to MBC to see the questions, here are the documents we used in class.
Welcome Parents and Students to a wonderful new year! This year promises to be an exciting one because of our Mobile Device Initiative, which means that your child will be using a tablet in class everyday. Although it is my goal to be as paperless as possible this year, they will still need to bring a plastic duotang, paper/pencil, and their agenda to class everyday in addition to their flash drive.
I will post all homework assignments here on my website and any information, directions, notes, etc. However, since this is a transition year, we will be adding websites that we will use and information will be posted elsewhere, like on My Big Campus (accessed through the student portal).
So, for homework assignment number one, here we go:
1. Explore this site. I left most of the information from last year so you can see what is in store. It will be familiar by the end of the course. Look at the syllabus. This is what we will study. Explore the links. Familiarize yourself with the tabs like CLASS RULES AND PROCEDURES.
2. Read the class rules. PARENTS: Fill out the Contact form. It is required.
3. Read the Materials. Optional is truly optional. Brands are unimportant. Walmart, Tiger Direct, Target, etc. Please get them as soon as possible. The students will not be able to participate until they get the materials.
4. Read the My Big Campus Digital Citizen Pledge. STUDENTS: Fill out the Contact form. It is Required.
If you have any questions, please contact me through the website or email me directly at email@example.com.
I look forward to a wonderful and challenging year!
It is nearly two weeks past the due date. All Edgenuity must be due by midnight Friday. I will not check for updates past this date.
I will collect the Final Study Guide on Monday or Tuesday.
Please remember to keep doing the Edgenuity assignments. I will be posting grades this weekend for all previous Edgenuity benchmarks. Progress Reports go home Thursday May 1.
The Final Study Guide will be available for pick up in my class on Friday with my substitute.
Here are the answers for the 2nd Study Guide. Study Well!
