ABOUT MY GOOGLE CLASSROOM DURING THIS TIME OF LOCKDOWN:
The structure and organization of my online Google classroom will be exactly the same as it was in my physical classroom. As always, you’re going to have to read every section that is assigned for the day. Then you’re going to be asked to take Cornell notes which will all get stamped when you return to school in May. Then you will open up the PDF file pertaining to that section and go through all my Powerpoint slides. You are expected to take notes as you go through these slides, just as you would take notes for my classroom lectures. After that, you will open up the file containing your worksheet for that section. Feel free to use your book, your notes or my Powerpoint slides to help you answer the questions. (Of course you are free to print the Powerpoint slides if that helps you.)
Just like always, you will need to write all the answers to the worksheet on a separate sheet of paper. Make sure you keep all these answer sheets neat, organized and in order so that when you turn them all in, it will be easy for me to grade each one. (That means make sure you put Chapter and Section #s for each sheet.)
Finally, you will do your online quiz for that section using Quizlet which I will show you how to do in a video that I will attach to the Google Classroom.
That’s pretty much it. There will be a WWII movie that’s going to be required for you to watch at some point (and you're going to need to answer some questions about the movie), as well as, a country brochure project which I will introduce towards the end of April. But for now, we’re going to see how you do with these basic instructions.
Of course, don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions whatsoever. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t worry, we’re all going to get through this together! Take care and good luck!
For your information, starting March 30th, we will be covering both Chapters 13 and 14 for the next five weeks. We hope to be back to school by May 5th.
For Chapter 13, we are covering Sections 2, 3 and 5. (Yes we are skipping Sections 1 and 4.) For Chapter 14, we are covering Sections 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. (Yes we are doing ALL the sections).
As always, it is very important to keep up with your Cornell notes for every section. Since we are not physically meeting, it is even more important that you read carefully and take very good notes as part of your self-learning process.
