Most of my class expectations can be summed up by one word: RESPECT! Be excellent to yourself and each other.
As a 21st Century classroom, we strive to be as paperless as possible. That’s why access to our digital resources on Canvas are so important. All assignments, resources, and course materials are available on Canvas. Parents, click here to create a Canvas observer account that is connected with your child so that you can access our online classroom space, too. Canvas is district-wide, and you only need one account to view course info for all of your child’s teachers, even with multiple students in CCS schools.
My classroom is Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) friendly. This means students are allowed and encouraged to bring and use their own digital devices in class for supervised educational purposes. Every day. Details about my BYOD procedures can be found on the BYOD page for more information, and this information will additionally be sent home in an email.
There are many opportunities for me to check in on understanding, and one way I perform these checks is by looking at the way students collaborate and connect with each other on a regular basis. PARTICIPATION and effective collaboration is a huge part of my classes and student grades. We do a lot of group work, and student opinion matters! It’s important to contribute ideas to class discussion and group activities. Remember, RESPECT is an expectation for everyone, so don’t be afraid to let your voice be heard and ask for help when you need it – we’re all here to support each other.
My courses, Digital Learning I, II, AVID, and Computer Science, can be found on Canvas.
