    Materials for Haflett Online Distance Learning (Materials are for MWH, Psychology and Sociology)

    (Why a materials list, this is High School? I know- please note that most items are "preferred." My goal is to give you as real of an experience as possible- and to have some time off screen. Ideally, I don't want to give screen-time homework- or any HW if I can help it! I believe having these items will enhance your learning experience.)

    Class Policies (In a normal World)

    • Bathroom- Use a transition time to get my attention and use the pass. If abused, bathroom privileges will be revoked.

    • Absences- All make up work and tests must be completed during your own time and within three days of the absence. All class materials from the day are available online in our Class Notebook and in hard copy in the classroom. Resource and lunch are acceptable times. It is your responsibility to see me to schedule any make-up tests during one of these periods.
    • Participation-  This class thrives on your participation. Ways to participate in class:  Class discussions, helping others, volunteering, taking active roles in collaborative work. Ways to participate outside of class- Blogs, Class Notebook, other Internet- based collaborative forums
    • Photos- I will take pics of you working and learning. They get posted to our class wall (literally a wall in the classroom!), used in projects and maybe even the blog. No pics will be posted online.
