Tuesday, March 17 – Day 2

Good Morning!

As we go through the process, we are all learning more.  For today, you should access Clever.com.  This is the main platform you will access to see all of your teacher’s pages.  They will have resources loaded directly there or link you to another site.  For me, you will see my teacher page on Clever.com then I’ll be sending you to my website for instructions.  I’ve also provided the links for NoRedInk and Schoology – two online resources we will be accessing.

Assignments

  1. Access Clever.com and do some looking around to see what your teachers have posted.  Become familiar with the platform.
  2. Work on your NoRedInk Unit 8 practice (Eng II) or Unit 7 (Eng III).
  3. Finish your NewsELA article of the week (The New Whopper!).
  4. Check back here for directions on how to set up a Schoology account.  This is where you will access assignments directly and participate in discussions.  There will be a quiz due Thursday by midnight (very easy).
  5. Find a book in your home or digitally (see below) that you want to read over the next few weeks.  This was going to be an assignment over Spring Break, so think of you just getting a jump start!  I’ll load a time chart on Schoology that you can use to track your time.
