Mrs. Birdsill         (PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN OFFICE HOURS and DUE DATES FOR WORK)

Welcome to Remote Learning for English language development. I miss seeing your faces everyday and being in class together. We will all get through this new learning adventure together and I will help you as much as I can.

I teach the following classes:

ELD: Entering 1- periods 2 and 7

Newcomer ELA- periods 3 and 8

ELD: Emerging 1- period 4

I will be using Google Classroom as the main platform for all classes. Everyone is already in the classroom. You must login with your school email address to access the classrooms.

Google Classroom Codes:

ELD: Emerging:  uvdlxov


Here are my office hours. I can be reached by email during these times and you can anticipate immediate help and response. Otherwise, I should be able to respond to any questions and/or needs within 24 hours. I will also be offering additional ways to communicate during office hours as we continue.

Grades

- Grades will be contingent upon students meeting or exceeding the minimum attendance (engagement and task completion) requirements FOR EACH CLASS.  Students that achieve this will maintain their third quarter grades. Students that exceed this may improve their grades. Students that do not achieve this may see their grades lowered.

- Students that would like to improve their third quarter grades should work directly with their teacher.

- In the Remote Learning section of the gradebook a score of "0" means the student did not meet the minimum expectations, a score of "1" means the student met the minimum expectations, and a score of "2" means the student exceeded the minimum expectations.

ALL WORK/ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE BY 12:00 EVERY FRIDAY
