WELCOME TO THE NEW AGE OF LEARNING… USATESTPREP
Information for U.S. HISTORY STUDENTS & Parents/Guardians
Ok… before you go any further read this first. Our school district will make this distant learning process as easy as possible for you students. Take a view of your grade, if you are satisfied with it then you do not have to do any of the distant learning, however, I do encourage you to do so though. It will not hurt your grade. HOWEVER IF YOU NEED TO BUMP UP YOUR GRADE WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO SO. IF YOU ARE FAILING YOU MUST COMPLETE THE ASSIGNMENTS FOUND BELOW. Now go read the rest of the information below and follow the instruction.
Hey guys, I hope this finds you all well and blessed! First and foremost, read this entire cover page for complete information on office hours, links to distance learning, and lesson plans. I know you are probably a little like me in the fact that you are going a little stir crazy and running out of things to do already. As we have all heard, and yeah it is true no matter how we try to fight the thing that is in front of us, we are going through unprecedented times and it does stink that it had to happen during your years in high school.
With that being said, we need to make the best of an uncharted situation and I promise you are not in this alone. I am here for you!!! My weekly office hours will be held on Tuesday 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and Thursday 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. During this time, I will be available to answer questions, ask for help or clarification on tasks, or communication with me for anything. You can also contact me through my email email@example.com. This contact will go directly to my cell phone, so you can expect a decent response time so I am available throughout most days, so please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime.
SideNote: As all of you know, your grade will not be affected by this distant learning, HOWEVER, if you want to RAISE your grade this is a perfect opportunity for you to do so The assignments are simple and easy to follow, just take some time to help yourself out while reviewing some highlights that we have covered.
Additionally, I will hold a Zoom conference at the beginning of each session to go over the lessons and answer any questions that you may have for that week:.
