Mrs. Kim White
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, they will be on Thursday afternoons:
U.S. History Class: 1:00 - 1:30
World Geography Class: 2:00 - 2:30
I will post or email the link to join Thursday's Google Meet. If you are unable to participate in a live instructional meeting, you will have the opportunity to view it later because I will make a recording available. It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter. The unit material will be found under the "Classwork" heading and organized under TOPIC on the left margin, by unit. You will find a calender and assignments and other resources there.
Keep in mind that due dates are provided in advance so that you may work at a pace that works for you. I understand you have other classes and responsibilities. Please don't get overwhelmed. We are all doing the best we can and learning as we go. We will get through it just fine together.
In addition to our small group (synchronous) meetings on Thursdays, I will have office hours all quarter where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have. My office hours are Tuesday and Wednesday from 1:00 - 2:30, but I will be checking email regularly throughout the day, so feel free to reach out.
If you are not sure how to join or use Google Classroom or just need a quick refresher, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials.
You can find a link to the 4th quarter grading policy here.
Please don't hestitate to email me or send me a text through Remind if you have any questions.
The 3rd Quarter ended on March 13. Students have the opportunity to improve their grade if they wish by following the instructions provided and reading the email that was sent to students on their Gmail account on Monday, March 30. If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you need to take no additional action at this time. Information about 4th Quarter assignments will be coming to you soon.
If you would like the opportunity to earn grades to improve your 3rd Quarter average, the assignments to complete and submit will be found on my Google Classroom page. Under the Classwork tab you will see the Topic: Q3 Grade Improvement Assignments.
*** Please email me to tell me if you are going to submit the required assignments to improve your 3rd Quarter grade.**
If you would like for me to provide you with additional feedback for work you completed between March 16 and March 27, please let me know.
During the two-week mandated closure, students can access instructional content for my class on Google Classroom beginning Wednesday, March 18th. Assignments will be listed as Day 1, Day 2, etc.
Make sure to sign up for Remind Texts if you haven't already: World Geography: @phsb8 to 81010 or U.S. History: @177674 to 81010
I will be available to support you with questions via email (email@example.com) or Remind texts during my office hours 10:30 a.m. to 12:30.
