WHAT I EXPECT FROM MY STUDENTS ---

*  be willing to ask questions, try again, listen to feedback

*  PARTICIPATION is a must!!


** A CLOSING NOTE
Part of remote learning is that students become more responsible for their participation and focus during the lessons. I am prepared to encourage, support, and challenge you just as I would in the classroom. However, I want you to realize that you have more control than ever on your level of success and learning this year. Good participation makes learning more fun and longer lasting.
So be ready to get engaged in our History class, stay up to date, and be positive about this awesome, fun 8th Grade Year !
