Course Update: February 2 Due Date

Information about your GaVS English Course

Keep Pressing On!

Hello Everyone!

We reached the first Assignment Due Date for the 18 and 16 Week students this semester! There are a few things I want to hit on so far, so I hope you find this update helpful.

Communication is key!

Please contact me as much as possible and as often as needed! Remember that email is the best way to reach me--phone calls can take up to 24 hours to return, but I can normally return emails in a couple of hours (sometimes minutes!). No question is too small for me, and I would rather you understand an assignment over losing points because you had questions. I am here for you!

Grades Have Been Posted!

Parents and Students--grades have been posted. Remember that we encourage parents to have their students log in to the student portal to show parents the most up-to-date grades. The following video below will show you how to check grades: http://www.screenr.com/4nAN

Don't forget about Adobe...

Remember that our Adobe Sessions are where you can get "in-person" help from me. I will be going over writing A LOT because writing is SUPER important for college and career readiness. Check out last week's chat if you missed it--the recording is posted under your "News Items"! The Adobe Chats are at 6 P.M. on Mondays!

Checking Quiz Feedback

Try to always check quiz feedback to see where you might have missed a question. The following video was posted under the "News Items", but you can also view it here in order to see how to check feedback:

MLA Format

Remember to include your MLA heading on all essays! Points for not doing this and not saving your files correctly will start being deducted. We must practice this heading! Check out the video below if you are struggling with MLA:

A few more reminders:

1. Please make sure you are submitting the correct file types, so I can open all files

2. Please make sure you listen to all Adobe recordings if you cannot make the chats

3. Please make sure you understand how important writing is and how important it is that you are attending or listening to the chats--I hold everyone to a very high standard regarding writing

4. Please ALWAYS ask questions!!
