Family Consumer Science E-Learning Information
Warrior Family Consumer Science Students, Parents, and Guardians . . .
Hello there! I hope you have had some time to rest and reflect as we begin a new and unfamiliar journey. First and foremost, students, I want you all to understand that I am still here to teach you the many life skills necessary for success in your bright futures. I am also prepared to answer all questions as promptly as possible. I intend to take some time each day to respond to emails (firstname.lastname@example.org) and respond on Google classroom. Google classroom will be your ‘NEW’ classroom.
So, some business . . .
I intend to deliver all material and information via Google classroom (this is not something you need to download). I have invited students to his or her classroom through their Arapahoe email. Please open that email and accept your invitation. Then, we can get started!
All work will be posted onto your classroom. As far as work or learning goes, I intend to post 2-3 assignments per week. All assignments will be posted on Monday mornings by 11:00am and will be due on Friday's by 4:00pm. Additionally all assignments will be graded and recorded into PowerSchool by the following due date (the next Friday by 4:00pm). Assignments will still be graded simply by point totals. Now, you may be thinking assignments, what type of assignments!?! I will do my best to provide you a variety of avenues for learning: videos, worksheets, outlines, journal entries, discussion boards, quizzes, and the like.
Lastly, let’s talk about your success utilizing Google classroom. My advice to each student is to check classroom daily and spend some time every day working on work. Set apart a time frame every day to just sit down and work. Do NOT wait until the last minute. I will do my best to be fair and reasonable, however, due dates will STILL be important. That also means that late work will also STILL be docked. Again, if there are questions, you MUST ask! Have some patience getting used to this whole ‘e-learning’ thing. Trust me, it will take some time for all of us. And finally, down slips will be sent on Wednesday’s to a parent or guardians email. This means that it is crucial that you check PowerSchool regularly as well!
Rather than seeing this opportunity as scary or inconvenient, let’s take this time to work together and learn in a new and exciting environment. We ALL can DO HARD things!
