Teachers Corner: Encouragement we all could use
MaryAnne Radmacher reminded me of what is important in the day to day life of school. Sometimes we forget that grades are not what define who we are. In fact, we learn the most through courage during difficult times. Radmacher says, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is a quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'" Many of you have said this as we continue this learning journey through Edgenuity. My encouragement to you is, continue to have courage as we tackle the rest of the semester together. We can do this!
Students can join our daily study group sessions from 1:00-2:00pm to work with peers and educational assistants on Edgenuity coursework. Please join the correct class below:

Google Meet Drop-Ins!
When? Where? Why?
When: Mondays and Thursdays from 10am to 11am
Why: This drop in is a great time to ask questions about Edgenuity, ask questions about an assignment or assessment, or a study time. We can even do a break out room if you have a private question about your grade.
November Tips to Try:
Khan Academy is a great free resource for students who have specific questions about math. They have tutorial videos and in depth breakdowns of the nitty gritty in math. There is also a comment section for each video where they respond to specific questions. You can use your school log in to gain access!
Old School Note Taking in a New School World
Cornell Note Style or Visual Notes
This is the most logical A-B-C kind of note taking. Title your page with what you are about to learn. Then you can take notes like vocabulary words or important dates on the right side while watching lectures or reading an article. The left side is reserved for subtitles to sum up your long form notes. You can even summarize your notes at the bottom so you can better remember what your notes say.
Essentially, you can put the topic in the middle. You can then add sub topics in the 4 boxes surrounding the circle. You can make each box what you want.
For example, Vocabulary words might be 1 box. In that box you can write the words and definitions. Or you can have a geography box and list important geographic features or names.
Side Note: You can use the .pdf provided by printing it out or you can simply draw your own on a piece of paper.
