Stakeholder´s Weekly Newsletter

NCVPS Spanish 1 with Sra. Kilburn

Welcome to my newsletter

Hello parents and school contact staff!

I look forward to working with your students this year. As everyone gets up and started keep in mind that this first portion is the most difficult. The students are learning how to manage an online class for the first time, learning to navigate a new site that has many features that make it both wonderful and a lot to learn at the get go. They are also downloading Java updates, quicktime updates, etc. Please help keep them from getting frustrated. It will get better. It will smooth out. And this is really a great course I think they can really enjoy and get a lot out of.

I will send out a newsletter weekly and keep you updated with what is going on in our "classroom". I always appreciate information and news about your student from you. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

How can you tell how your student is doing?

On the course landing page, on the left hand margin, there is a link called "Grades". If you open this, you can see which assignments have been done and the grade they received. The students have been told to print out the Schedule of Assignments and use it as a check list as a way to keep track of completed work as well.

The Learning Block - Important to read daily and to read past posts if out for some reason

The Learning Block is a forum inside our course where I post daily announcements, reminders, celebrations, and instructional tips. This is the place in the course where the students can hear directly from me regarding conceptual topics in the course. When the student first opens Moodle, they are bounced directly into this forum. Many of the students are reading and responding to my comments there but I also still have students missing out on valuable instruction. Please help your student become used to reading announcements daily and if out for some reason to read past announcements.

In need of help?

Is your student in need of some extra help? The Peer Tutoring Center is an excellent option! I also highly recommend the use of our tutors with Final Project studying!
