Hello parents and students,
During these difficult times, I will try to keep the online lessons as simple and straightforward as I am able. The teacher website remains the main source for the information, but I've also sent an invite to students for Basecamp via email where they can ask any questions and get quick information from me. Depending on how things work with that platform, I will use it more frequently. However all main lessons will still be posted on the main website. I will also keep in mind students won't have access to the classroom supplies so any task given will require simple supplies they can find at home.
During the first week, I would encourage the students to try login in to Basecamp and check out the platform. I will post the lessons there as well and see how it works for everyone. I have setup what they call a headquarters for all of the students to see the assignments, but the also have teams for each period so they can benefit from information from their peers. They can either use Basecamp on a desktop computer or on a mobile device as well. I've had success using either medium.
Daily lessons will be posted under Support Material on the teacher website as I've always done during the school year. Students can just find the lesson for the day by looking for the date and see what I have planned for that particular day. My expectation is they will submit electronically (either email or through Basecamp) by the end of each week the material given during that week (unless I've indicated otherwise during the lesson since some tasks may take longer). They can take pictures of their art assignments and submit electronically. If the work is written, they can submit a word document with their answers.
I strongly encourage students to keep up with the pace each week. That way if they have any questions, I can answer them before the tasks are due.
Please don't hesitate to ask me if you have any questions and/or concerns. I'll be more than happy to help clarify anything.
