- "I am posting a daily Announcement that has an agenda of what they should be working on that day. There is a Question of the Day as their Do Now, and then a content specific assignment, and then a short news segment on YouTube to watch (using my History class as an example). The content is a little different for my English and ELD classes, but I intend to be consistent with the Agenda Announcement with a note from me and 3 tasks for the day."
I try to provide tutorial videos whenever possible. All assignments that students hand in will be counted as extra credit during this pandemic break.
I have sent a listening assignment with a score of the music that we are working on, even though we haven't work much on the music yet. They have been listening for the different parts of the orchestra that have the main themes or melodies. It's just as important to listen as it is to physically practice the part on an instrument for musicians!!!
In 6th grade, we’re currently finishing research essays that students began last week. Each student researched a famous female from history to write about. We’ll be doing a reflection project next week on independent reading.
