Welcome BACK! I am looking forward to working with you this year towards your child's success. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
This year, we will be working a "flipped classroom." Students will have a GOOGLE account where they will be able to access our Google Classroom. On Google Classroom, I will post questions to students to answer, post assignments, and most importantly class notes. Students will be expected to view the math notes video PRIOR to the lesson (at HOME) and write notes in their journals. When they come to class, we will pick up from that video of notes and continue. Students who don't have notes will not be prepared for the lesson, and will be behind in their learning. This is VERY important. Because this is so important to their learning, I will require a parent review of the notes and a parent signature each time.
Math notes videos will be posted during the school day the day PRIOR to them being needed for class. Students may go home and immediately take their notes for the following day's lesson. This WILL be a homework grade.
So, what happens if you have problems with WIFI one evening, or if your computer is down? Never fear - we have computers at school where the student may take down his/her notes AT SCHOOL during WIN time the day before they are due. Or, should something happen suddenly that evening, the student may come in during tutoring hours (8am-8:20am) that morning and take their notes down. (Just shoot me an email the night before, so I know he/she is coming.). Please remember, this is the student's responsibility to know what is going on at home, and to make the time to complete their notes for the lesson.
I STRONGLY encourage ALL parents to VIEW the video at this link for more information: Parents: What Is a Flipped Classroom?
