To Do List

  • SURVIVE! Be at the right place, doing the right thing, at the right time.
  • Limit unnecessary student movement (clinic, offices, media center). Strictly adhere to the cell phone and tardy policy. Teach bell to bell.
  • Begin planning for your final exams and projects. Remind students we do not take exams early. If they have a conflict, they must complete a prior approval form and request permission from the Principal's Office to take exams during post planning. All teachers should follow the exam schedule unless they receive permission from Mrs. Hall for emergencies.

CK-12 Foundation: Free Online Textbooks, Flashcards - sign in with Google account

CK-12 is an online educational content site sponsored by the CK-12 Foundation, a nonprofit that desires to increase worldwide K-12 access to high-quality STEM content. CK-12’s main offering is a collection of free digital textbooks (called “Flexbooks”) for high school age students, particularly on topics in science, engineering, and math. CK-12 has created more than 88 Flexbooks that cover approximately 5,000 STEM content areas (from life science, like DNA vs. RNA, to sequences and series in calculus).

CK-12 offers far more than just textbooks on a screen, however. It’s giving the word “remix” real meaning in education. In addition to traditional text-based material, CK-12’s material is available in more than a dozen other modalities, such as videos, quizzes, flashcards, and “simulations,” or interactive content that brings visualization to abstract concepts. For example, a simulation of force might be showcased with an interactive Ferris wheel, which the user can click on and move to manipulative a force tracker.
