Please find our class in Office 365 TEAMS. In an effort to make learning science as easy as possible, I have the following expectations and promises to each of you. Please realize that this is a work in progress and changes could be made daily!
1) Please check your school email and Teams each scheduled school day.
2) Please watch the videos and do the assignments posted in TEAMS in a timely manner (this includes tests and quizzes).
- I promise I will provide feedback on your work as quickly as I can! Optional items will be clearly noted with “OPTIONAL.” Most optional items will be to do labs or activities for yourself, do not worry if you do not have supplies, Online options will be available.
3) Please ask questions! You may use your preferred method to ask those questions: join the TEAMs and chat with me or send me an email between the hours of 7am and 5pm. My email is email@example.com.
