Digital Literacy 6
I will use Google Classroom and Google Drive as day-to-day learning platforms. Primarily, work done in class, on and offline, will take the place of traditional “homework”. Participation and effort count! Work that the whole class does not complete during class may become homework; I will inform students if that is the case. Students need to follow posted due dates and are responsible for finishing all classwork that they do not complete during the allotted class time. Work that is late/missing and/or graded as a zero may be made up for credit, but will have points reduced.
We will do most individual work and collaboration within Google Drive and Google Classroom, using individual applications and sites. Students check Google Classroom posts on the Classwork and Stream tabs. Completed assignments will be listed in my Infinite Campus gradebook, visible on the Student/Parent Portal. If a student misses class time, check Google Classroom to see what is current: students have access to most class content and specific assignments, projects, and quizzes. If absent, Google Classroom should make it easier for students to make up work at home. Students succeed when attending every day, learning and collaborating, online and in person.
I encourage you to log in frequently with your student to check on assignment progress. In addition, as a parent or guardian, learn more about Google Classroom notifications. Click here: Classroom Help.
