I'm feeling a bit like a broken record - repeating again and again the same message to hundreds of emails.
#1 - All tests and quizzes may be retaken several times by all students.
#2 - I have NEVER refused an IEP or 504 prescribed notecard, printed notes (which are on the website for all) a modified worksheet or test, or a seperate testing location.
#3 - Any modification allowing the use of a notecard for a quiz or test is supposed to be "Teacher Approved" BEFOREHAND by me.
#4 - If a student does not present a notecard to me for approval before a quiz or test DOES NOT mean I refused to allow it.
And due to the fact that tests and quizzes can be retaken by any student, a previously unused modification can be used for the retake(s).
#5 - The Resource teacher should be helping students prepare for the upcoming quizzes and tests in all mainstream classes and reminding them of their entitled modifications.
It is my wish that all of my students be as successful as they will work to be.
Please Join the Remind app for your student's period. Instructions are under Week 2 2018 in the Fall Earth Science section.
The new textbook's website is not yet compatible with AERIES, but they are working on it. No worries! We are doing just fine without it.
The syllabus, class rules, daily agenda and assignments for Earth & Space Science are under that semester heading located on the top menu bar.
I will put notes and information under the "Parents" heading that will keep you informed as to how best help your student be successful.
The video " Don't let THIS happen to you!" on my Home Page is one I show in class and recommend watching to Parents as well. This actually does happen quite often to teachers. In lower grades, teachers often wear the shoes of part-time parent. In High School this role changes to one more similar to job experience and employer expectations. Students step into assuming more responsibility of meeting "job" requirements (ie - reading and studying at home, keeping track of assignments and their paperwork, and getting enough sleep and nourishment before coming to work/school).
I offer help sessions and make-up assessments at the following times:
- Monday - at lunch - Wednesday 3:00 to 4:00 pm and Friday - 3:00 to 3:30 pm (unless at a school meeting)
IF YOU ARE ABSENT - assignments and handouts are available on this website. And should already be listed on your assignment sheet.
Please contact me by email if and whenever you have questions or concerns - firstname.lastname@example.org . It may take 24 to 48 hours to respond as I may need to consult with your student or may have previous school business obligations to attend to. But I will be in touch as soon as possible.
Looking forward to a wonderful year,
Mrs. Viki Griner
