Welcome to Mr. Black's Class

  • Steve Black I have set up Zoom class meetings for each period. Please check you school e-mail and your Canvas inbox for the invite.

    • Period 1 Monday at 10:00 AM 
    • Period 2 Monday at 1:00 PM
    • Period 3 Tuesday at 10:00 AM
    • Period 5 Wednesday at 11:30 AM
    • Period 6 Wednesday at 1:00 PM

    If you can't find the invite, e-mail me at sblack2@everettsd.org and I will send you the link. 

    Over the time out of school, I will post activities and ideas that you can use to continue learning on the class Canvas page. To get to Canvas:

    From the Everett school page or the JHS webpage, click the student’s page, then click on Canvas. Log on like you always do. You will see all of your classes.

    Please continue to read in your independent reading book for about 20 minutes each day. If you don't have one, get one. After reading, open your reading journal, or create one on a Word.doc or Google.doc, and write a two to three sentence summary of what you read, or write two or three questions that you have about the reading, or make a connection to what you just read and write about it.  

    Also, in order to improve your writing fluency, you need to write in your writing journal as often as you can. Writing fluency is a student's ability to write with a natural flow and rhythm. It helps get the ideas that are in your brain to the paper or computer. Don't worry about spelling when writing in your journal. 

    Create or open your writing journal document on Word or Google.doc. Then try to write seven to ten sentences every day about how you are dealing with the Quarantine, something new or interesting that you learned or did during the day, plans that you have for the week, good shows, movies, or games that you are playing, or anything else that is in your mind. 

    Thank you for working.
