Mr. Timothy Sofis
I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you! Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful.
When we have live instructional sessions or small group meetings, social studies (my classes) will be on Thursdays between 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM. I will record our sessions to view later for those who have other social studies classes that may overlap our live session. I may offer additional live learning through Google Meet if necessary between 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM one or two days per week depending if we need more instruction or question and answer sessions. If you would like to meet personally for a one-to-one instructional Google Meeting to help clarify material or answer questions, I will be happy to coordinate that with you. Continue to communicate with me through email.
It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least twice a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.
Students, we will begin new content on April 15th and I will provide a Google Doc calendar on Google Classroom of our 4th Quarter topics to help you pace yourself. I will post assignments, powerpoint notes, video clips and question guides to help you learn the information. Keep in mind the due dates when activities are posted.
I will have office hours all quarter daily from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have questions!
During the mandated closure, students can access instructional content for my classes using Google Classroom https://classroom.google.com/h and Desire 2 Learn https://pcps.desire2learn.com/d2l/login for Economics and Personal Finance class. I will be available to support you with questions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
