Shawn Watkins-YatesSocial Studies
Here is all the information you will need to log into Mr. Watkins Online Classrooms...
For all Classes:
We will be using Remind and my email as the primary means of communication. Since I no longer have an office phone, please use remind and urge your parents to contact me through remind as well. Your parents can even call via the remind app just like it was my office phone.
My office hours are Monday-Friday: 10am to 2pm. If you email me, or send me a remind, during these hours I will respond right away (or as fast as possible if I am busy with another student). Outside of these hours I will do my best to answer questions and messages in the order I receive them.
Please check your Google Classrooms and Remind for the date and time of your first in class video meeting! This is all about the information you will need to succeed this term. Please try and be there during your scheduled time.
For Honors World History Students:
On Monday you will have access to your course in Edgenuity. Please take the (Prescriptive Test). It is a long one, up to 100 questions. THIS IS NOT FOR A GRADE!!! This is an assessment to see what information you know. You should not pass it because we have not covered any of the information because we are behind.
You need to spend at least 50 min a day in Edgenuity doing lessons and working to complete the course. If you want to do more that is fine, but if you do not do the minimum then you will not pass the course. This is out of my hands. The county has set this curriculum and we need to abide by it.
Every week on Wednesday I will be taking your scores from Edgenuity and putting them into Focus. It will be a single grade in Focus. There will also be a category in focus for Extra credit. Any supplemental material I post in google classroom and mark as
We will be discussing all these issues during our first in video class meet, and then I will post the video to the Google Classroom for each respective hour.
