First and foremost, I hope all students and their families are safe and healthy. Second, I realize that teaching and learning via an online platform will be somewhat difficult and foreign at first, and there will be times of frustration. I am here to help and I urge us to work through these issues together. In the end, I am sure we will all be successful--students will learn and earn credit towards graduation.
I am changing the format of my website to make the online learning experience easier. Below you will find my fourth quarter grading policy for each class, invitation codes for each period's Google Classroom, and Remind Codes for each individual class. Codes for other online applications will be posted on each specific class's Google Classroom site. I will update this site and codes as needed. I will upload lesson plans each week as well so students and parents will have a pacing guide (for Edgenuity) or an outline of lessons for the week. Lesson plans can be found below. As always, I can be reached at email@example.com. Thank you!

Brief Introduction of Online Platform and Revised Grading Policy:
Students in my English 2 classes will use the Edgenuity Platform
for all of their work. Students will log
in to their CCPS accounts and click on the Edgenuity icon through Classlink. I will post lesson plans every Sunday with a
suggested set of lessons to complete that week.
The district has mandated the following grading system for Edgenuity:
Lessons and Activities: 20%
Final Cumulative Exam 30%
Focus will show two grades.
The first will be the overall grade in Edgenuity. This will be a running grade for their
progress in that course up to that point in time. I will update this progress weekly, most
likely every Thursday. This will allow
time for me to contact parents Friday to check in and resolve any
problems. The second grade will be for
extra credit. These will be supplemental
assignments beyond Edgenuity. The
purpose of these assignments will be to boost the overall grade if you feel the
Edgenutiy grade is too low. These
assignments will be posted to Google Classroom beginning April 6th.
AP Language and Composition
Students in this class will not be using the Edgenuity learning platform. All assignments will be posted to their Google Classroom sites. I will post lesson plans every Sunday to this website and the Google Classroom site. Because we will now be learning and working via an online platform, we will be using a variety of online applications (nearly all of which the students have used before). These platforms will include AP Classroom, Vocabulary.com, EdPuzzle.com, Flipgrid, and possibly Microsoft Teams. The latter two programs will enable us to meet face-to-face or post individual videos.
The grading scale will remain the same as the first three quarters.
Students in this class will not be using the Edgenuity learning platform. All assignments will be posted to their Google Classroom and Canvas sites. Canvas will be used for essays only (the same as all year) and all other assignments will be posted to Google Classroom. I will post lesson plans every Sunday to this website and the Google Classroom site. Because we will now be learning and working via an online platform, we will be using a variety of online applications (nearly all of which the students have used before). These platforms may include Noodle Tools, Vocabulary.com, EdPuzzle.com, Flipgrid, and possibly Microsoft Teams. The latter two programs will enable us to meet face-to-face or post individual videos.
The grading scale will remain the same as outlined in the syllabus posted to each class Canvas site.
I will be available for office hours Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Though I may hold class meetings for AP Lang and Comp and ENC during those times, I will do my best to answer questions, take phone calls, and return all emails. Please email me first with concerns. Please make sure to leave your preferred method of contact, and a phone number if you request a call. I will do my best to contact you within 24 hours. I understand this will be a great learning curve for all of us, and I am here to help!
