In the January 7th English Orientation, we went over lots of different things that would ensure that the student has a successful year. One of the most important things was deadlines. Assignments must be completed and submitted by the Sunday after the assignment is due for credit. If you miss this deadline, you can still turn it in for 50% of the credit. This excludes discussions, and all extensions must be requested. For attendance (which is worth 5% of your grade), you have to attend one live session per week. If you’re unable to attend, you should watch the recording and fill out the attendance sheet. The LVHS Writing Policy states that writing must be turned in in order of when it’s due/ the writing process (planning, first draft, final draft). We then went over how to navigate in the course. Tests and quizzes are mostly computer scored, but some tests and papers are teacher scored. These assignments you have to turn into the dropbox.
Other ways to be successful this year includes following daily lessons, turning in work on time, logging in everyday, checking your kmail, and asking for help.
At the end of the presentation, questions were asked and teacher contact information was posted.
