Update - Tuesday, April 14, 2020. Going forward, all assignments will be posted on Schoology. Be sure to check in daily for attendance and assignment updates.Since Schoology is currently down, I'm posting the daily assignment here temporarily:
Monday, March 30, 2020 – Welcome back! I hope you all are doing well, and are adapting to this new learning environment. It's definitely been a challenge for us as teachers, and it makes me realize just how much I prefer teaching in person. Alas, we will soldier on! Here is my plan for the upcoming week.
- Be sure to read through the information on the "Materials" page for the Schoology course (This is found on the left hand side of the page just above "Updates.")
- Complete the Online Learning Check-in Form on Google Classroom today. This will give me an idea of where you are and what you've been up to.
- Ultimately I want to spend the majority of our time going forward on punctuation, but we need to finish Infinitive Phrases and Clauses first. So, 1 – Log in to Study Sync and complete the exercise called "Infinitives and Infinitive Phrases. (You can access Study Sync through the Clever App, found under "Additional Links" on the CHS homepage. Click on the red "McGraw Hill icon, and then the yellow and white "Study Sync" icon.) You will find definitions and examples of infinitives under "Model" and the exercise is under "Your turn." You may also use any previous grammar notes or worksheets we've done in class to help you answer the questions. My PowerPoint on Phrases can be found on my CHS webpage under "Helpful Handouts" as well. 2. Log in to No Red Ink and complete the "Practice with appositive, prepositional, and verbal phrases" exercise. These assignments will be due by Friday, April 3.
- Literature – We will finish up Jane Eyre this week, and then begin Romeo and Juliet after Spring Break. Hopefully you've finished the novel by now, (if not, finish it) and my goal is for those who are finished to have a final discussion via Zoom on Friday. If you haven't already finished your discussion reflection on Google Classroom, please do so, so I can start entering the grades. (I will be having a private conference with those who have yet to lead discussion soon.)
Remember after you've read today's update to click the "like" button, and this will count as your attendance for the day. We have to take attendance each day, and the daily update is how we will count you as being "present."
Finally, Here is a link with instructions for parents to sign up for a schoology account: https://support.schoology.com/hc/en-us/articles/201000823-Sign-Up-as-a-Parent?fbclid=IwAR06_52OhIFYYfBPGLb-6gg80FoB8JOHMvk93z4dgDvlUSUOtiAo3GvFWWI . To get your 12 digit code, please email your 2nd period teachers. You should receive a response this week. (This may take awhile as this is a new requirement that we only found out about yesterday.) The FINAL day to check out a chromebook if you need one is Monday, March 30th. They will be available in front of the CHS Performing Arts Center from 8:30-11:30 am.3/29/20 - Schoology access update: Here is a link with instructions for parents to sign up for a schoology account: https://support.schoology.com/hc/en-us/articles/201000823-Sign-Up-as-a-Parent?fbclid=IwAR06_52OhIFYYfBPGLb-6gg80FoB8JOHMvk93z4dgDvlUSUOtiAo3GvFWWI .

I hope you are all doing well (or as well as can be expected given the bizarre circumstances we now find ourselves living in). Our district is moving towards distance learning, but we have yet to officially implement the new online platform we will be using. We are also trying to make sure that all of our students have access to a computer and the internet. (If you haven't already, please take the survey that was sent out by Principal Hyden: https://forms.gle/mMEf5BfC75zkbUWu6 ). Students who need chromebooks should be able to pick them up from school over the next three days. It looks like by March 30th, we should have the new platform figured out and should have some lessons in place. Please check back to this webpage for any updates. In the meantime, here are some things you can work on:
Vocabulary – we left off on Academic Vocab lesson 37-38. You can practice with Quizlet (the link for which can be found on my Helpful Resources page). You can also review Vocab List 9.
Grammar – If you haven't already signed up for my No Red Ink class, please do so. The code for English 1 Period 1 is goofy rock 9. The code for English 1 Period 2 is left fan 41. The code for Honors English 1 period 3 is dizzy lake 95. (Note the spaces). There is a practice assignment that focuses on phrases (appositive, prepositional, and some verbal).
Reading – I would encourage you all to keep reading independently. Find anything that interests you. If you don't have anything at home, the Sacramento Public Library has some great digital offerings (ebooks as well as audiobooks). Here's a link on how to apply for a library card if you don't have one already: https://www.saclibrary.org/About/News/2020/Remote-Access-to-research-and-eBooks .
I hope you're finding ways to help your family and friends in these difficult times. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Be safe and take care of yourselves!
