    Online Learning Upate 3/29/2020:

    Hi everyone! I hope you are well. I wanted to give you an update about instruction. Keep in mind that these instructions are just for Ms. Powell's World History class. Assignments will be given through Google Classroom. I plan on using Zoom to video conference as a group to discuss content you may have questions on. I'd like to post guided videos of each lesson, but I need to look in to doing that. This online class structure will be used at least until April 15th(EDIT: NOW MAY 1st).

    I know this time is confusing and may be frightening, but I'm here to support you as your teacher. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns by sending an email to tara.powell@marion.k12.fl.us 

    Attached is a link to video of Ms. Powell explaining how the class will work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re92K6Xzlac
