Continent Project: History P2&P6
On Monday your Continent Project is scheduled to be turned in. I will be there on Monday, and would like you to bring all of the work you have completed. I understand that there may be a few questions still. Therefore, we will work on projects in class with my support and peer support for one (two if needed) class periods to answer questions, make any corrections, or completions.
YOU MUST BRING WHAT YOU HAVE STARTED TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY. THERE SHOULD BE NO ONE THAT HAS NOT BEGUN THE PROJECT AS IT WAS ASSIGNED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO!
If you do not bring anything to class Monday you will not start a new project. This time is to help students that want to get accurate teacher support. If you do not have a project you will be sent to another class so that you can read quietly without interruption from our work.
Email me with questions as I will be home the remainder of the weekend
Make sure you stay organized this year. We have a very limited time in class to go through our backpacks, 3 ring binders, and other folders... Please be sure you have at least one day a week that you empty your bag and sort through all of your materials and put things in the proper place.
As we move though the year the increase of assignments and projects for all classes will start to grow. Stay on top of all of your classes. Finish assignments on time and go over notes and classwork each evening.
Check O365 and ABI often. Email your teachers and classmates if you do not understand, were absent or just to say thanks for being a great classmate. Check your ABI at least once a week If you are unsure about a grade or assignment email your teachers. Don't just show up banging on the door, use the skills you are learning and send an email. That is the first step to being responsible for your own learning.
We are off to an amazing start. I am feeling so incredibly proud already. When students come to my class they are no longer called my students. I start to always refer to them as my kids. I once had someone ask, "How many kids do you have?" This year 90, over my life, I guess around 15,000 or more from Detroit to Calimesa. The best part is that people say teachers can change a student's life, and it's a two way statement. Students' also change a teacher's life. Each year brings new excitement, new learning styles, and new challenges, and I believe that in D110 we have sorted a lot of that out and are on the path to a truly great learning experience.
