E-Learning Days – 3.12 and 3.13

Hope everyone is staying healthy or getting well!

For Thursday and Friday, here’s what to work on:

Listen to Chapter 12 of A Wrinkle in Time. This is the last chapter in the book so any other chapters that have been missed should be read or listened to as well. Ch 11 starts at 4:54:46 and Ch 12 starts at 5:23:23 in this YouTube video below.

Looking at their Google Classroom assignments on the book, it is clear that most of the class has a lot of work remaining to do on this. So that is the primary thing I want them to focus on for Thursday and Friday.

There are 27 slides total on the assignment and they’ve been able to work on it some during class over the last two weeks. Students can pick 4 slides to wait until next week to do in class, the rest of it should be completed when they return on Monday (if we are indeed back in action as planned). So all but 4 slides should be completely done. Please look over it with your student to make sure they are showing some effort on this assignment. It’s a big assignment worth 300 points in their reading grade as it’s really the only major thing they had to do that goes with the book.

Google Classroom log ins ( are either or Passwords were created by the students themselves but they were recommended to make them the same as their Compass passwords.

Optional things include: Compass (if behind), Spelling City (we’ll have this test on Thursday next week), IXL (any subject, still an extra credit opportunity), Prodigy.

I know some students will not have a chance to get any of the paperwork items from this week, so they will have extra time to complete those items next week when we return.

If your child brought home a five day plan, feel free to follow that guide. Several students in Mrs. Owens’ class were reporting that they had not remembered their packets and didn’t have a way to contact the teacher or obtain more.

Any combination of 4 days of activities will be accepted as proof of “attendance” and for a grade between the ones sent home on Monday and the ones posted here.

Here are the e-learning assignments for Thursday and Friday.  I added the assignments to the same document that was posted for Tuesday and Wednesday’s assignment, so you will see the assignments for the first two days as well.  

Reminder: Internet Explorer is the best browser to use for Compass.  Using Chrome will cause the some glitches while your child is working on Compass.  

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the assignment.

You do not have to print the worksheet for this assignment. DO NOT SUBMIT VIA EMAIL! Write your answers on a piece of lined paper and turn it in when we return to school. You can put this on the same paper as the E-Learning from Tuesday and Wednesday. This assignment is for Lt. Dean and Lt. Austins classes. Use the attached Chapter 5 from the Aerospace Journey of Flight book to answer the questions.

Today (Wednesday 3/11/20) the WHO (not the band) declared the novel coronavirus to be a pandemic. Research what has to occur for a disease to obtain “pandemic” status. Based on this information, why has the novel coronavirus been labeled a pandemic?
