Workbook Page Corrections: Students can do workbook page corrections to earn 1/2 the points back for each question they correct. The corrections must be completed on a separate sheet of paper with all work shown and stapled to the original worksheet. Corrections are due the next day after they are graded.
What is a flipped classroom?
A flipped classroom has students doing, what would normally be their homework problems in class with me. At night students will be required to watch the video lesson for tomorrow's work on the computer. I believe a flipped classroom makes sense with the new math standards and new testing formats. Instead of parents trying to help students with problems or questions that don't make sense to them, I will help the students in class. The lesson videos will be available all year for students to use to study for tests and quizzes. Also, parents can watch the videos with their child to help them understand the new curriculum. Videos will not be longer than 20 minutes. If your family does not have access to a computer, tablet, smart phone, or the internet, please let me know when you return my syllabus. My classroom will be open Monday - Friday for students to use our computers for no charge, if your child does not normally attend After Care. Students in After Care will be able to come to my classroom, too. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Here are some websites that explain the "flipped classroom":
www.aleks.com At the end of each nine weeks Aleks is entered as a quiz grade at the end of each nine weeks
Percentages that need to be earned for Aleks each nine weeks:
1st 9 weeks: 30%
2nd 9 weeks: 60%
3rd 9 weeks: 65%
4th 9 weeks: TBA
Students who exceed the goal will be rewarded.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Emails are the best as I am in class all day at firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving me a phone message at (352) 259-0044. Please remember that if you call, the front office will not put calls through during class time, but I will return your call on my next break.
