Current as of 4/01/2020 
Due to the closures, please go to Clever for more resources on how to get MS Teams, interesting reads, and simulations. I have posted four optional labs for the students to perform and other review materials for the students to look over.

Coronavirus Class Schedule (4/15/2020):

Our class time is now Wednesday 8:30 am - 10:00 am. I will have an approximately 30 minute review meeting on MS Teams and an hour for the assignment, which will include webquests/critical thinking questions, PhET simulations, and activities.


Predominately I will be using Microsoft Teams for review . I plan on utilizing videos in MS Teams as well as standard notes in the app.  As of right now on MS Teams, I have my notes from PS 2 through PS 8.

For class sessions, such as for questions and instruction, I will be using MS Teams. I will record a video lesson and post it to MS Teams.. I will send out the MS Teams invitations the night prior to the meeting with the information on what we will be covering.

I will be utilizing Study Island as well as other resources again- the link will be in the useful link tab.
