Hello and Welcome to Mr. Utter's Social Studies Class.
The following letter was sent out in regards to the transition to online learning on April 3rd
I hope you are all safe and healthy. Beginning on Friday, April 3, we will embark on this new adventure of distance learning! As your child’s Social Studies teacher, my goal is to make this experience as enjoyable and manageable as possible. We have been using Google Classroom for a majority of the year and I believe that students in my class are familiar and prepared to find and submit assignments. However, if there are any questions at all, I am available during normal school hours by email.
I understand that this is an uncertain time for all students, and so it is important that we take each day as it passes. My goal is to start slowly and ensure that everyone is comfortable. I believe that my students, having used Google Classroom so much this year, are on a firm and steady foundation for the weeks to come. As we all adapt to our new forum for learning we will do our best to adapt our school expectations to an online platform. We will get through this together, it will be a learning experience for everyone and we will be stronger for it in the end.
On Friday April 3, the first formal assignment will be posted on Google Classroom. All assignments will be categorized by the week and day that they are assigned in order to ensure that students can easily navigate Google Classroom. Each day will consist of a check-in, a lesson, and an activity. There will also be daily office hours that students can access to ask any questions that they may have. It is very important that students are logging in each day to check for the day’s tasks. As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. If there are any extenuating circumstances that I should be aware of, please let me know.
I teach Global 1, U.S. History Regents and U.S. History Honors. Most essential information can be found on Google Classroom which can be located in the side bar.
