  • Virtual Learning 101

    Posted by Trina Cicco on 4/5/2020

    I hope you all are excited to begin our virtual learning experience! This post will be much longer than my normal posts, but we are in uncharted waters and I want to make sure we have our life boats ready to stay afloat! Let's begin this new voyage together!

     

     

    What will a daily student schedule look like for all students?

    8th Grade

    7th Grade

    7th Grade Math 1 Students

    6th Grade

     


    How can you be successful?

    Review the DRMS Remote Learning Commitments for some tips and guidelines to have a successful virtual learning experience.

     

     

    What will a week of healthful living look like?

    Each week we plan to have a themed week of activities for you and your family to complete. Yes, I am including your families!! While you are all stuck in a house together, you may as well have fun and be active together! Each week you will have 1 weekly challenge, and 2 lesson activities. The weekly challenges will be something smaller for you to complete daily and help to get you up and moving each day. These challenges may or may not come with a video. The lesson activities will be similar to what would take place during your PE & fitness class and will come with video instructions or demonstrations. Some of the videos may have another DRMS healthful living teacher leading the lesson. You are still to complete the activity and turn it in to me on Google Classroom. Each lesson will require you to complete/turn in something. The completion requirements will vary from lesson to lesson.

     

     

    Where will you find videos & assignments?

    All videos for the lessons will be posted in Google Classroom. All assignments will also be posted in Google Classroom and all assignments must be turned in to Google Classroom for me to review. I will also post comments on your assignments once turned in. If you do not see my class in your Google Classroom, email me with your WCPSS email to let me know and I'll invite you join my class.

     

     

    What if you have a question about an assignment?

    I will be able to help you and answer questions in a variety of ways!

    1. Email me (tcicco@wcpss.net) from your WCPSS student email

    2. Send me a message on Google Classroom under the assignment

    3. Send me a message on Remind

    4. Ask during our weekly Google Meet sessions

    5. Ask during my office hours: 2:00-3:00pm 

     

     

    What are office hours?

    Office hours are a time where I will be readily available to answer your questions right away. My office hours are from 2:00-3:00pm Monday-Friday, unless otherwise notified of a time change. During this time, if you have a question and you message me, I will be able to respond back quickly. The more questions I have, the longer you may have to wait, but I will get to your question shortly. You are more than welcome to message me a question outside of my office hours, but know that it may take me longer to respond.

     

     

    Google Meet Sessions

    There will be weekly Google Meet sessions to connect in real time and discuss the lessons and how you are doing. Google meet links will be posted in Google Classroom for you to click and join in. The following days and times are your scheduled Google Meet sessions with me. 

     

    8th grade, period 4: Tuesdays, 8:30-9:15am

    7th grade, period 6: Tuesdays, 9:20-10:05am

    6th grade, period 8: Tuesdays, 10:10-10:55am

    8th grade, period 3: Wednesdays, 8:30-9:15am

    7th grade, period 5: Wednesdays, 9:20-10:05am

    6th grade, period 7: Wednesdays, 10:10-10:55am

     

     

     Google Meet Rules & Expectations

    Please adhere to the following rules for every Google Meet session you have, not only with me, but with all of your teachers. This will ensure that our Google Meet sessions are a success for everyone. 

     

    If you still have unanswered questions, please let me know! Please don't get stressed out over virtual learning either. We are in this together, and together we will be successful!! See you on April 13th! Stay safe, keep social distancing, and keep washing those hands!
