WELCOME TO MR. JOHNSON'S HOMEPAGE!
A message from Mr. Johnson...
Hello Students and Parents, and welcome back to the 2020 - 2021 school year.
I teach AP Psychology and AP European History at CVHS, and it will be my pleasure this school year to teach your son or daughter.
As we all now know, we will be entering a new era using distance learning until it is safe to return back to school in the traditional method.
With that being said, I will be using the following digital platforms this school year to offer instruction: Zoom, Google Classroom and AP Classroom.
A quick overview of the platforms and how they will be utilized this instructional year.
ZOOM is the platform we will use to offer live instruction during the school year.
It is also the platform that will allow me the teacher to offer direct interaction with your son or daughter, and it will also allow students in the classes to interact with each other.
The goal is to create a learning environment that is conducive to learning, but to also offer a place to interact with each other and build meaningful relationships during this distance learning phase we are in.
GOOGLE CLASSROOM is the platform we will use as the main site to access assignments, class materials and links to additional resources.
It is also the platform that will be used to turn in all classwork, homework, and also the place where we will take tests and quizzes on the course content.
Grades will also be posted on Google Classroom, these will be imported to your Student Portal (Google Classroom will always have your most current grade).
Students, if you have not already signed up for the Google Classroom website, please send me an e-mail and I can send you the class join codes for either Periods 1, (Psychology), and Periods 3,4,5, and 6 (European History).
Parents, if you would also like to be added to the class as a guardian to have access to the site to stay in the loop, please send me an e-mail, I can add you as well.
AP CLASSROOM is the platform we will use to prepare and practice for the AP Exam that your son or daughter should be planning to take in May.
There will be activities assigned as homework from this site that will be graded and added to grades in Google Classroom.
The types of assignments on AP Classroom are set up to replicate and practice for the AP Exam, these include the following:
1. Multiple Choice Tests
2. DBQ's (Document Based Questions)
3. LEQ's (Long Essay Questions)
4. SRQ's (Short Response Questions)
I send out an e-mail providing you with the join codes for the AP Classroom webiste.
