History: Investigation, Evidence, Action

  • Mrs. Green

     

    I would like to introduce myself.

    I am Mrs. Green.

     

    DURING THE COVID 19 CLOSURE as of March 30th, 2020:

     

    First and foremost, I want to thank each and every one of you out there. None of us could have ever seen this coming but I know we are up to the challenge.

    Right now, I cannot be there in-person to show you work but you, MY *AWESOME SUPER BRAIN*, students can read, interpret, and learn about history during this time. We are going to continue on this adventure together!!

    To help everyone, I will be keeping to the following schedule:*

        And I will be starting to post Zoom videos to check in with EVERYONE! All in Google Classroom.

    Parents Information (and students know)

    i am on your side. I will help as much as I can. This is new to us all. Teachers, parents, students  . . . 

    I do not expect you to be a homeschooling parent all of a sudden. One of the biggest things about being in school is the socialization that we are now ALL missing right now. I put in time estimations for every single step of these processes. The 8th graders know exactly what to do for the new assignments. We had just done this process 10 times before our closing. 7th graders have been practicing this work in a different format but I know they can get this. And since all students have practiced doing the daily assignments the last two weeks, we should be off and running.

    Accountability. I will report "grades" as follows on on-line grades.

    • TI = turned in completed and on time
    • TL = assignments completed late
    • MI = nothing submitted

     

    •  The only exception to Letter Grades of Accountability is that I will be posting the Presidents Memorization Score.
      • Again, it will not affect the grade but WILL show improvement as students show their progress so far from October to the current time and beyond.
      • Some students will be starting off perfect since the last two weeks of practice got them there already!

    From now on, I will only send out ONE EMAIL a week.

    • Tuesday Progress Report day using the Accountability Codes outlined above.
    • I will continue with this process since that has been our routine all year long.
    • Updates will be announced Tuesdays on that email.
    • This website should be your first resource for history class
    • But, as always, I am available via email to answer your questions as best I can.

    Work that affects their grade will not be entered until the state/district set up that policy.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a tool to help all of us. 

    Please take into consideration your own personal circumstances.

    I have set up my Google Classrooms by date.

    Unless it is really important for you to hold your student accountable, I would recommend always focusing on CURRENT work. Make sure the daily work is finished. It will show up as a To Do for them. Then, make a choice if you wish for them to do previous days. Saturdays and Sundays have always been and will continue to be yours. 

     

    Please take care of you and yours.

    Mrs. Green

    You will find that I will be sending out a lot of information via email to any/all who join my address book. Students should bring a sign up form for the address book within the first 2 days of school. IF you want to receive test notifications, newsletter information, general information regarding Eisenhower events and do not start receiving them within the first 2 weeks of school please contact me and just tell me which student belongs to you so that I get you on the correct email list.
     
    Here's to having an excellent, investigative, and supported year.
