Shout Out to Mrs. Bartels and Mr. Lovin

French and German students are two weeks into using Canvas for oral assessments. Mrs. Richardson has been collaborating and providing in-class support with Mrs. Bartels and Mr. Lovin. Students have quickly become proficient in the Canvas platform, and are actively engaged in their learning of a new language. In true BYOD spirit, Canvas is providing student practice with teacher feedback.

Thank you, Mrs. Bartels and Mr. Lovin for showcasing your growth mindset, and taking a risk on a new tech tool!

Tech Tuesdays!

See Mrs. Richardson, to collaborate with her about integrating technology into your course content.

"Tech Tuesdays" will be a time open for teachers to meet during a planning period! Bring your ideas!

September 27th-Want to learn more about Canvas?

Come to the Media Center or email Mrs. Richardson to sign up for time during your planning period. Sessions will include up to three (3) teachers per training.

Mrs. Richardson will answer your questions and/or help you set up an assignment or discussion board activity for your students.

Combining Classes in Canvas

Combining Classes in Canvas is possible! It is called a "Crosslist."

Link to information about creating a Crosslist: http://canvas.wcpss.net/crosslist/index.htm

You can make the request yourself, by filling out the form (see link above to find the form).

There is one drawback, as stated at the bottom of that page:

  • To prevent data loss, cross-listing of courses should be completed before students begin working in the Canvas course. If the following data exists in a course at the time of cross-listing, it will be lost: submitted assignments, quizzes, discussion posts, work done in groups and all other grade associated items.
