Using Files from the Team Drive

When using items from the Team Drive for instruction - Please make a copy of the file first, and place in your own My Drive. Only members of the Team Drive can access the files. Sharing of files outside of the team drive members will require the person to request access. I will not be approving access outside of the members of the team drive.


This will also allow you to make changes to documents without changing them for everyone!


For directions on making a copy of a document and moving it to your own drive, click here.

Student Interest - Four Corners Activity

La Maestra Loca has shared a Four Corners activity to gather information on student interests! Although her slides are intended for Spanish classrooms, it could be easily adaptable to other languages. The interests are mostly generic (in reference to language/country/culture) but each corner is represented with a flag of a Spanish Speaking Country that would need to be changed, along with a few cultural items. Find her post here.

Immersion Days

Last year, we continued our Language Immersion Days at Spruce Run and COSI. Spruce Run books very quickly, so please sign-up soon! Please let me know if you are interested in participating in either Immersion Day experience here. You can watch the video, from the Spruce Run Immersion Day, put together by our Communications department here.
