It was rejuvenating to see our campus come alive again last week with students. I am thankful for the work our teachers and staff are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy, and I am proud of the way our students stepped up to the challenge and accepted new routines and policies.
As we step into our first full week with students on campus this week, it is still at the forefront of our minds that teachers are serving students both online and on campus. As we reflect on the first half of the quarter, we recognize a single change that we can easily implement that will increase students’ engagement and alleviate teacher workload. While we are still conscientious about students’ total time spent in video instruction, our teachers can schedule more live, zoom classes beginning this week. Students can find their weekly schedule on the Google Classroom Stream and under the “Classwork” tab.
Also, teachers will be announcing their weekly tutoring times this week. For online students, a zoom link for tutoring will be made available at the top of “Classwork” in Google Classroom. Again, I thank our teachers for their herculean work.
Google Classroom can be tricky to use. Below you’ll find a pictorial guide on how to navigate to the assignment list for a given class, which includes assigned, returned (graded), and missing work for a class.
