WELCOME STUDENTS, PARENTS & GUARDIANS
I am Mr. Bragg and I will be your teacher in one, or more, of the classes listed above or to the right. All of my course materials will be made available through this website. Our Google Classroom, where you submit your work, is available only if you are enrolled in the course with me at Horton High School.
Each course offers you exciting opportunities to learn. Learning is a difficult process and I will be asking you to reflect on your learning as we proceed. Keep a journal either online (Audio, Video or Blog/Website) or offline but expect to share it with me each week. You must share your journal during class time & it will be graded based on your specific course requirements. Those requirements are found on your course outline.
I facilitate learning by directing it. Inquiry is at the heart of what we do in all of my courses. In this space I hope to develop you as inquirers, through activities in self reflection and by studying the world around us.
All summative assessments (what results in your grades in my courses) are individual in nature and reflect your learning against the set objectives of the course. Each class will challenges you to act, so one must be active to achieve the best result. That includes actively reading, watching the videos, answering the questions in your text and reflecting on it all in your journal. Show me how you learn and I will work with you to meet your needs.
As much as possible I aim to involve students with their school and the wider communities they serve. This is done in an effort to instill a sense of self, community and citizenship. I am firm believer that education should be highly interactive, informative, engaging while catering to the needs of all students and building essential skills for life and life-long learning. To accomplish this I offer a safe and supportive space for all students to express themselves, learn and grow. Throughout this process I study your growth throughout the course of our time together.
If you ever need to contact me I am only ever a phone call or e-mail away.
