Hi everyone. First I just want to say that I miss you guys and hope you and your families are healthy and safe and not getting on each other’s nerves! :) I wish I would have had more foresight about the Coronavirus because I would have told you guys how much I enjoyed my classes this year. You guys honestly were a great group of kids and I hope I told you that often. You made it a joy to go into work everyday. OK maybe not EVERY day, but almost everyday. Even though I am really loving time at home with my baby daughter I miss not seeing all of you everyday and I hope you are all doing OK. While it is sad that we didn't get to say goodbye you can always come visit me next year and I can tell about the evils of communism once more.
As most have probably heard the district policy is that from this point forward, no student’s grade can go down from what it previously was, it can only go up based on optional work that the teacher provides. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO DO THIS, BUT ALL OF YOU SHOULD, INCLUDING THE STUDENTS WITH 'A's IN THE CLASS, BECAUSE THE PURPOSE OF SCHOOL IS TO LEARN AND NOT TO GET GRADES!! I will be creating one or two assignments per week for you guys to complete if you intend on raising your grade from what it currently is.
If you are only one or two percent away from a higher grade, you may only have to do a few weeks of work to raise your grade. If you are further away from a grade you desire (say a 70% and want to bring it to 80%) you will have to complete every assignment and also get an excellent grade on every assignment for you to be able to raise your grade from a 70 to an 80%. It will be difficult, but possible. It will not be possible, however, to raise your grade two letters grades in the same way that it wouldn't have been possible to do that had we been in school with only half a semester left.
The first weeks assignment will be to watch this video about World War II and complete the accompanying questions that I have attached below. Answer those questions and turn them into me via email email@example.com be sure to include your name and period and tell me how you are doing during the quarantine.
-Check back next week and I will have the work for the next week posted, hopefully by Sunday. Miss you guys! Stay healthy, stay safe, wash your hands and stay inside as much as you can. I know it is annoying, but if our ancestors can risk their lives fighting Nazis and Communists, I'm sure we can handle staying inside and watching TV for a few months. If our society can't handle that, we might be in trouble!
