• As we get started with this process, I would like to setup some guidelines for us to follow:

    1. I will be holding “office hours” Monday through Friday at 10:00 – 11:00 AM and 1:30 – 2:30 PM. During these times, you can reach me by phone at (352) 897-0023 or by email at Joel.Kunz@marion.k12.fl.us. I will do my best to answer all concerns and issues at that time. If I get flooded with concerns, I will do my best to respond to you as quickly as possible. Please, keep your questions to academic issues; I love to have conversations with you, but with the number of students we need to stay on task with academics.
    2. All assignments need to be turned in through the Google Classrooms that have been established for each class period. This is the only way I will be able to keep things organized. Google Classroom will become the electronic the new black tray – just like in the classroom.
    3. Please, please, please – put your heading on every assignment you turn in:

    Name

    Date

    Period

    Name of assignment

    1. Some of you have turned this first assignment in using different methods, which is fine, but from this point forward, I need you to utilize Google Classroom. – Thank you!
    2. I need you to download and familiarize yourself with Zoom. I will be holding class discussion utilizing Zoom. I have provided a link for a video for you to learn about Zoom. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7xXZxRDFUU
    3. Your first assignments will be posted on Monday Apr. 6. Depending on the assignment, you will have 5 to 7 days to complete.
    4. American History and World History will be using electronic textbook that can be found on MCPS portal. Please make sure you can access your textbooks. For Civics, I will be providing pdf for textbook; these will be available from my teacher website.
    5. I will also be providing links to other educational websites for you to do readings – more information about that later.
    6. You all know – I do not like to assign questions from the textbook and just simply have you answer. I would like to give you more freedom to show your knowledge of the subject; therefore, we need to work together and find creative ways to accomplish this. I am open to suggestions, but we need to maintain academic rigor.
