We do a number of these assignments in class, but there are also homework posts.
The regular homework assignments are:
- Thanksgiving Break
- Christmas Break
- February Break
- Spring Break
Students have from the last day of school until the next time they see me for class to complete the assignment. Each assignment will be different by grade, with each grade having their own independent blog post with which to comment in. The actual post titles will be sent home on a half-sheet of paper by the last day of school before each break.
This blog, and the comment form, can be accessed from any internet-enabled device; smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, Android, iOS, Mac, PC, etc. With the assignments being given over extended periods of time, and with the blog being open & accessible (no need to log in) I have made every effort to ensure all students have plenty of time & opportunity to complete the assignments.
Posting comments require a few steps and are moderated to help ensure only appropriate content is published. Here is a short video tutorial on how to post a comment:
I will review each comment and publish them within 24 hours of submission, so feel free to check back the day after a student submits a comment to make sure it went through.
As always feel free to reach out and contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
