Mrs. Wiley's Google Classroom - I am so excited this year to have a class set of chrome books for students to use in class. We will be using google classroom for important information and assignments. This is a new adventure for me too:) Quizlet will also be able to be accessed through our google classroom. Please join using your account and password assigned.
Quizlet Homework/Review review for vocabulary grades - students will have access from their google classroom account for our class. Students must complete flashcards and test (until 100%) for vocabulary points or they may do it the "old school " way - write all terms & definitions. Bonus points for completion of additional activities. Most chapters students will take a vocabulary quiz on the due date of the vocabulary assignment unless it's a short chapter it will be incorporated into the chapter test.
