Hello and welcome back to school! If you are visiting my site before school starts, I'll be including a list of materials you may need for class.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all on Monday, August 12. It will be a half day-celebrate! Please come to class with paper and pen as we'll be doing a writing activity.
All students, this year you will need writing utensils (standard blue or black ink pens, highlighters in multiple colors, and a pencil) a 8 1/2 by 11 sized notebook (spiral or composition), a 3 prong folder (I recommend poly over paper for durability), and a section in a 3-ring binder w/ dividers. Yes, you need to have space in your binder for materials from our class! Your notebook will be specifically for this class, so don't plan to pull pages out of it.
Every year, I have a few students who need a little help, so if you're able to make donations of supplies to class, I'll make sure those supplies go to those who are in need.
AP students, please make sure that you have your summer assignment with you (your essay and Major Works Data Sheet for The Things They Carried) as I'll be collecting them.
All students will be getting a computer/tablet- I have no idea what it looks like, and I'm not sure when you're getting it, but I will say that you'll be expected to have your device, fully charged, in class daily.
Password manager- I highly recommend that you have a password manager like Last Pass that will help your organize the many passwords you'll need to survive in a technical world. In order to protect your accounts, you need different passwords and it's very hard to remember them all. We'll talk more about keeping your digital world organized this year.
