During the time that students are at home during the Coronavirus outbreak, all assignments for my class are posted on Google Classroom. Beginning with Week 1/March 23-March 27, 2020, each student will be responsible to turn in the THREE assignments for each week. The first week (March 23-27, 2020) will be labeled "Week 1 Assignment 1, Week 1 Assignment 2, and Week 1 Assignment 3." Each of these three assignments contain a specified number of items (generally three submissions per assignment) that must be completed and turned in no later than Friday, March 27, 2020.
Should the Public Schools of Robeson County extend the date for which students are to be out of school past the current March 30, 2020 date, then the next set of assignments will cover March 29-April 2, 2020 and be labeled "Week 2 Assignment 1, Week 2 Assignment 2, and Week 2 Assignment 3" and will be due Friday, April 2, 2020. This in no way implies that the Public Schools of Robeson County will make such an announcement; this is merely an example of the posting of assignments for my classes SHOULD such a determination be made in the future.
STUDENTS: All students were provided a Google Classroom code at the beginning of this semester and we have completed assignments during the first 9 weeks of the semester. Nothing has changed; all students can access our Google Classroom normally. I will send classwork-related emails, post classwork-related assignments, and grade assigments through Goggle classroom. If a student has any questions, the student can email me directly or contact me through Google Classroom. IN ADDITION, I WILL BE AVAILABLE ON GOOGLE MEETS ON EVERY MONDAY AND THURSDAY FROM 9AM TO 2PM and WEDNESDAY FROM 5PM TO 8PM.
World History students: Because Coach Tamburrino and I both teach World History, we are collaborating on the World History assignments; if an assignment is posted to our Google Classroom by Coach Tamburrino, it is an assignment that you are required to do. If you have any questions, please contact me via email, through Google Classroom, or through the Google Meets times posted above.
PARENTS: If you as a parent wish to track your child's work and assignments, please contact me via email at email@example.com with an email address or phone number that I may use to allow you access to Google Classroom. I would strongly encourage you to do so as this will alllow you to see what your child is required to do, the grades they have received for the work, and any class announcements made to students.
While we are not using Canvas for our work this semester, I have used Canvas in the past. If your student has a teacher who is utilizing Canvas, the information below should be helpful in allowing you as a parent to access Canvas.
In order to access Canvas:
Log on to the Fairmont High School webite.
At the Fairmont High School website, click on the "Home Base" icon.
After typing in your student number and password at the Powerschool login, scroll down and highlight/click on "Canvas" on the left side of the website.
Highlight and click on the class you wish to view the assignments.
We have learned in class how to load the Canvas app on student phones. To do so:
For Students AND Parents:
Go to the App store for you cellular device.
Find the Canvas app and load the app onto your phone. You may be directed to load a "student/teacher" version OR you may be asked to load the "parent" version. Load the appropriate version of the app onto your phone.
When the app is loaded, you will be asked to "find your school." Begin to type "Robeson County Public Schools." You will be asked to if our school is the correct school, to this question you will select the appropriate response for your device.
If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wish everyone well and hope that the Coronavirus crisis is resolved so we can all return to our normal lives.
