Dear students and guardians,
Welcome to 9th grade Global Studies at Roy C. Ketcham High School. This year we will be studying World History from Pre-Civilization through the Enlightenment. At the end of this year you will take a district-wide final exam. We will be starting the year off remotely. Distanced learning can be challenging, however, I have been working very hard to make this difficult situation as seamless as possible. Students will be required to follow a synchronous schedule that was provided by the district. Our daily scheduled meeting time will be Period 4 from 9:40 - 10:05. During that time I will be taking attendance and working with the students based off of the lesson for the day. They will have access to our class by joining the Google Meet link that is attached to our Google Classroom.
The second half of the day will be as follows:
12:05 -2:25 Students: Students work on asynchronous learning opportunities, as assigned, to complete independent/practice work. Students can schedule time to speak/meet with the teacher or support staff to discuss work or to ask questions. Students may also participate in small group follow-up lessons as arranged by a teacher.
I will be available from 12:50-2:25 to speak or meet with students individually. I am also available to meet in small groups to answer questions. I realize this may be overwhelming and I am always here if there is anything you need. If there are any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to contact me via phone or email at email@example.com.
