PLAN YOUR WEEK
  1. Start each day with prayer and a Bible reading or devotional.
  2. Organize and review your planner each morning. Each Monday, open the Week at a Glance document for each of your classes in Google Classroom or Canvas and log into your FACTS account on your Chromebook to check grade updates and lesson plans. Record the things below in your weekly planner:
• All your required submissions for the week, assignments as well as quizzes or tests.
• Which teachers will be going live and expecting you to be there too!
• When you will collaborate with peers if needed.
• When particular teachers are available for returning emails, texts, or calls.
• How you will spend your independent time each day.
 
RESOURCES
  • Note the types of technologies needed and test them before they are needed (Chromebook, charger, apps, websites, etc.)
  • Make sure you know what outside help is allowed when completing assignments. Ask your teacher if unsure.
