After analyzing the survey results from the email I sent out after class last Saturday, it looks like my originally proposed new Zoom meeting time which was 7:00 PM - 7:50 PM on Saturdays will not work.
I took into account the preferences of all parents that responded and came to the following conclusion:
-Overall, twice on weekends during early afternoon with 50 minute sessions is preferred.
Therefore, I am officially moving our Zoom time to Saturdays AND Sundays 1:00 PM - 1:50 PM starting THIS weekend!
If you have an opposition to this, please let me know by Friday. If you like it, then reply saying that you like it by Friday.
Based on the Governor's order, it does not look like we will be returning to Newport High School to host in-person classes this semester. I am required by NWCS to create a 14 class curriculum with a mid-term and final exam. In light of these, I have created the following schedule for this class:
4/4/2020 - Class 1 (completed)
4/11/2020 - Class 2
4/12/2020 - Class 3
4/18/2020 - Class 4
4/19/2020 - Class 5
4/25/2020 - Class 6
4/26/2020 - Class 7
Short Mid-term Exam on TeacherEase
5/2/2020 - Class 8
5/3/2020 - Class 9
5/9/2020 - Class 10
5/10/2020 - Class 11
5/16/2020 - Class 12
5/17/2020 - Class 13
5/23/2020 - Class 14
Short Final Exam on TeacherEase
This course will officially end on 5/31/2020, meaning that all work in TeacherEase is due by that date to receive any credit including the mid-term and final exams. There will be no Zoom sessions on 5/24, 5/30, 5/31.
Grading for this course will be Pass/Fail this semester. 60% is a pass, so even if your student chooses to only complete 60% of the work in TeacherEase, they will pass this course!
To stay healthy, please remember to continue practicing social distancing and wash your hands regularly. To stay safe, please remember to reduce the amount of times you leave the house. We're all in this together!
Thank you again for reading my emails to keep updated on this class's progress. As always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, or concerns that you have!
Have a great rest of your week and see you all this weekend!
