      • Our specific class/period has a new “meeting time”. In the below task, I have instruction on review of a PowerPoint presentation where the district’s new schedule will be explained.
        • Please make sure you make efforts to be active during our new “meeting time”.
        • If you miss our “live” meeting time, you may get delayed feedback from me as I move on to different classes and periods throughout the week (same as if we were in school).
      • First... go on our Canvas and explore our Modules. To introduce Distance Learning/Phase 2, there is a Module called Distance Learning.
      • Next... watch my (very entertaining) PowerPoint Presentation in the module. It is in video format, so make sure you have access to sound.
        • LIVE MEETING: Participate in the class discussion ON CANVAS- where I will be “live” for your class period answering any questions you may have on this.
          • For your class I will be active and live:
            • Period 6: 10:30AM-11:00AM
            • Period 7: 2:30PM-3:00PM
