     Announcements for the Commencement of Distance Learning

    AP European History

    AP Psychology

    Psychology

     **Update - as of 3/30 there is no new information so we will proceed with this plan for now. If there are any changes in the future I will update this main page with the changes in red, send and send an update to students in classroom. Thank you as always for your patience as we all adjust and please feel free to contact me with any questions. Email is best for now!

    Hello Students, Parents and Guardians!

    As you know on Monday March 30th we will begin distance learning. While other teachers may decide upon different methods for delivery of instruction all work for AP European History, AP Psychology and Psychology will be posted to students through Google Classroom and invitations have been sent to students using their official school email addresses. Parent notifications have been sent using the email addresses they have on file with the district in Power School.

    Teachers and administrators will be meeting online Monday 3/30 to discuss and clarify last minute questions regarding delivery of online  instruction in the next few weeks so please check back to this page tomorrow morning in case there is a change or an update.

    **Parents and Guardians - Power School is our source for up to date contact information. If you did not also receive this message by email please make sure your email contact information is up to date in Power School and check your Spam / All Mail folders. 

    To my students,

    I really miss you all! I hope you all stay safe at home! We will get through this! Stay strong!

    The following guidelines for AP Euro, AP Psych, and Psych will apply unless something changes due to our online meeting in which case this will be updated tomorrow evening:

    Schedule of classes:

    In keeping with the idea of A / B schedules work will be assigned every other school day. Do not worry about which day or section you are normally assigned. Just join the course you are taking. I have sent all students an invitation to the appropriate class via their school email account. The dates for new assignment posts will be in the specific course box below.

    Due Dates, Grading, and Submission of Assignments:

    • Given the need for flexibility in people’s lives during this crisis DUE DATES ARE ONLY A SUGGESTION AND NO POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FOR LATE WORK! Think of the “due date” as a suggestion in terms of your own pacing of the materials. We are working with the intention of being on pace and ready for the exams (AP in early May and Regents in June should it be given).
    • I will give completion grades on assignments and qualitative feedback when applicable however these grades will NOT be posted to power school at this point unless further directive is given. They are for your consideration only at this point.
    • Assignments can be typed and submitted or a picture can be taken of handwritten notes and uploaded unless directions specifically call for assignments to be typed. 

    Extra Help, and Contact Information:

    • I am hoping to get familiar enough with Google Meet this week to begin having the ability to use this for any students who would like to check in in person at designated times. Once I get this going I will update the webpage and classroom with the times available.
    • I will be checking and responding to email daily at 8 AM and again at 11 AM for anyone who has questions or needs help with something or if you just want to say hi!

    AP European History:

    • Materials and assignments will be posted to Google Classroom on the following dates:
    • March 30th - There are already two assignments posted for March 16th and March 19th. If you have not already completed these please
    • Additional postings will be added on 4/1, 4/6, 4/8, 4/10, & 4/14
    • If the state suspension of classes continues after 4/15 we will proceed in the same fashion every other day.
    • Changes or updates to this schedule will be posted on Classroom and my webpage.

    The AP Exam:

    • The College Board is due to update teachers on the exam plans on April 3rd. Here’s what we know so far:
    • The exam will cover the period up to BUT NOT INCLUDING World War I and everything after (Good news! We are there!)
    • The exam will be made available for students to take online in their homes.Dates are forthcoming.
    • The exam will be reduced to approximate 40 -45 minutes of free response questions. We do not know if this is short answer or long essay, but the board will not be giving multiple choice as far as we know.
    • The CB has expressed that students who wish to can get a refund if you don’t like this arrangement, but please wait until their full plan is revealed. You can do this!

    The Regents Exam:

    As of this moment the state has cancelled state exams that affect K-8 but NOT REGENTS EXAMS. This may change as it is an evolving situation. In either case I will be preparing you for the full content of our course. Don’t stress about this now. When I have answers or news on this I will provide it, until then we “Keep Calm and Carry On!” =)
