It’s a whole new year and a whole new way of doing things. But one thing remains the same: Mr. Coward’s Website. This is where you find EVERYTHING related to this class. Everything! Homework, vocab sheets, quizzes, tests, Zoom links, links to discussion forum… Come here if you have questions.
We will be going LIVE Monday, 8/24. I will be in my classroom doing exactly (almost) what I would do if you were there. C’mon, it’ll be fun!
A few things to get you started before we start:
- Get a spiral notebook that you will use ONLY for this class. I am going to try to keep the class experience as close to “normal” as possible, and that includes you doing classwork and vocabulary definitions BY HAND in your notebook. You will only be typing for tests and essays! It’s best if you have this ready to go on DAY 1.
- Find an independent reading book. It’s called KBARR around here, and it’s a huge part of the class. We won’t start with the official KBARR until about a week in, but in this day and age, it might take awhile to get an actual book.
- Make sure you have a spot to “do school.” I will be expecting to see you actually writing in your notebook and holding it up and participating in groups on ZOOM, so you need a “spot” to do that. This won’t really work on your phone.
- Keep checking back here and exploring around. I am updating several times a day right now, so there is probably something new.
