Welcome to Mr. Woods’ "Blended Learning" Classroom
I am committed to responding to all student and parent emails within 24 hours on weekdays.
***Note: The following information is subject to change!
Students are returning to class on campus Tuesday 3/23!
The following schedule applies to the week of 3/15 through 3/19 only.
The following schedule applies beginning Monday 3/22.
This map shows entrances to campus and the flow of traffic throughout campus.
EFFECTIVE WHEN STUDENTS RETURN TO CLASSROOMS:
ALL students MUST HAVE YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE with you on the first day you return. This could be printed, or online (like on your phone).
Everyone will be wearing a mask while in class.
My Physics CP, H, and AP students will meet in room 206 by cohort. My POE students will meet in Room 32 by cohort. When Cohort A is in class, Cohort B will be at home.
When IN CLASS, our focus will be discussing your previous HW assignment (your "Asynchronous" work), working on in-class assignments, and doing assessments.
When your cohort is NOT in class, you will have a HW assignment (your "Asynchornous" work) posted IN GOOGLE CLASSROOOM that you will work on independedntly.
THERE WILL BE NO TEAMS VIDEO CALLS. We won't need them - you're showing up to class!
THERE WILL BE NO OFFICE HOURS. You will have direct access to me each day your cohort is in class - that's the best time to ask questions.
Outside of class time, you can still email me with any concern you have. (email@example.com)
What to bring to class every day:
Your Notebook, a pen or pencil, and a calculator if you have one.
Online Class Meetings
I use Microsoft Teams for my online class meetings. Students can log in using their ClassLink account, opening Microsoft Office 365, and opening Teams.
(I use Google Meet for Office Hours, see below for more details.)
