Mr. Eheca Aztlah
I want to give you a virtual welcome to this new virtual classroom. I am sorry that we have to move to virtual learning under these circumstances, but hopefully, we'll be able to make good use of our resources.
We have about 30% of the course to cover but this should not be a stressing factor for you. Rest assured that we will be moving at a very light pace without too much of a workload.
Our Canvas calendar will reflect learning objectives and time span to attain them. The resources you may access to master the objectives will be on Canvas for PAP classes and on Edmentum for grade level classes.
Also, we will be having virtual tutoring sessions on Fridays to solve questions you may submit via email as you move along the course.
You are expected to work between one and two hours a week on each of your subjects and attend the Friday zoom sessions. You just have to click on the invitation link to join the conference.
Remember, I am a friendly facilitator of your learning and I am here to support your academic success. I am not perfect and I am sure I will have to be making a bunch of mistakes as we navigate together these uncharted waters of online learning.
Wishing you the best of these conflicting times...
