REMOTE LEARNING WEEK 2
Hello again American Literature Students!
I hope you and your families have been transitioning to being at home and staying healthy. I know it has been a challenge to figure out this new schedule and the format for this was of learning. Now that we have tackled some of the technology issues, I would like for our classes to get in to a routine, or at least be able to more freely find the things you need to find and more efficiently contact me at the right place and time. So, here are a few more guidelines to follow this week...
1. NO CONTACT TIME: Monday-Friday after 5 pm AND Saturday and Sunday ALL DAY! These are the times that you should NOT contact me. Please do not expect that during these times any reply message, emails, or assignments will get responded, reviewed, input, or addressed. I also expect that during these times you are not working or submitting work. Take this time to relax and enjoy your time at home.
2. Office Hours:
- Tuesday Office Hours, 2-3 pm (moodle Chat):This is where you can ask me questions about the assignment and check in. You are not required to stay the entire hour. Once you have asked a questions or marked yourself as "PRESENT" you may leave the chat. You can always go back and read the chat at a later time by clicking on the chat button and picking the chat you want to read.
- Friday Office Hours, 2-3 pm (Remind): This set of office hours will be through Remind. I will send out a Remind message and you will need to respond with a question or simply by saying "PRESENT" if you have no questions.
***Reminders: Submitting assignments on time, as well as responding to Reminds/moodle Chats, are both taken in to consideration for attendance. Please stay in contact with me and submit assignments on time.
Check moodle at the BEGINNING of EVERY WEEK to find out what your assignments for that week will be. Things may change weekly, depending on what I need you to do, and how long we will be remote learning. Sometimes I will assign something specific that must be completed during the assigned block period only. But sometimes, I will simply give you all the assignments for the week all at once, along with their due dates, and you will be responsible for organizing your schedule and your work as you see fit. Please remember that submitting work on time counts towards attendance. If you do not submit something by the due date, I assume you have not seen it and if I have not heard from you, I will mark you absent.
You will need access to myAP. I will assign practice multiple choice tests, as well as writing prompts, on this site. Please make sure you can access it ASAP so that you can avoid any missed assignments. The assignments from this site will often be timed and must be done within the assigned block period (Wed 12-3).
TURNING IN ASSIGNMENTS
All assignments will be submitted through moodle, or through TURNITIN.com via moodle. This will require you to have internet access and to be able to access moodle by signing in with your Damien gmail and by being enrolled in the class. Most of you have already done this and have figured out any remaining problems.
ALL SUBMISSION PORTALS, LINKS, DOCUMENTS, ETC... WILL BE FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH WEEK'S MOODLE SECTION.
Submitting should be as easy as writing directly in the text box provided. Some people also like to do their assignment on a Google Doc first and then simply copying and pasting the answers into the moodle portal text box. This ensures that if your submission does not work, you have not lost all of the work you did and you can go back and try to resubmit again, since your work is saved on a doc.
