Mr. Schenkelberg's plan during school closures:

Students and Family Members, please look to your email for notices and guidelines for school assignments. Having used Google Classroom for written work in the past, I will be making use of Classroom for work while we are primarily online.

Here is where you can look for updates:

  • Below on this page, under Updates - I will copy my emails to this page with assignments and guidelines.
  • On my Classroom site, where I would like students to submit their work and engage in class discussions.
  • During my Office Hours (MWF from 2-3pm) when I will be responsive to questions over Classroom and email.

Any questions? Please reach out to me at my email to the right.


To access course content and assignments students can log in to their Google Classroom (HUSD account access only). Students and parents can also view my webpage here.

Students without access to a digital device or internet can contact me for alternatives.

To view grades and attendance students and parents can access the Infinite Campus Portal.

Email to Seniors 3/17

03/17/20

Hello students!

 

I hope everything is going okay for you and your families. For today’s email I’ll be going over a couple assignments, and I wanted to point out that I’m setting all deadlines for Classroom assignments for Friday, 3/20. That way, if you didn’t finish yesterday's assignment or won’t be able to work on things today, you can still make sure to get things turned in this week.

I also wanted to point out a direction that all of us teachers received from Mr. Seymour yesterday. At this time, considering how it's unclear if all students are able to access email and assignments, no assignments will have a negative impact on your grade. I want to encourage everyone to work on my assignments so that your learning can continue as best as possible, but keep in mind that all the work you can turn in while we are online will only help your grade as we get closer to the end of the third quarter. 

That being said, I am still catching up on grading from when we were in school, so look for your grade to move around a bit sometime today or tomorrow. Also, for the seniors, since your short story was originally due before schools were closed, I will be grading that assignment normally.

With that in mind, here are your assignments for today! I’m thinking I’ll do the daily updates this week, and then switch over to more of a weekly plan next Monday. As always, you can email me with any questions or concerns. 

  • Grammar Tuesday 3/17: I’ve had to think for a bit about how to switch Grammar Tuesday to an online model. I’m thinking I’ll try and use a Google Form to make it, and set it so that you can see your answers after you submit. I will simply give you credit for completing it, instead of marking points off for single questions.

  • Work on your short story revision! Refer to my handout with the guidelines (a copy is on the short story assignment on Classroom) for a scoring guide. Even if you think your story has it all, I highly recommend still working on a rewrite - create a new doc, and then re-type your story while looking at the first draft. As you re-type, you will immediately see things that you want to fix or rephrase, or places where you can add in foreshadowing for the ending, etc. Note: I will be looking at all the feedback forms people turned in, and if it won’t be too much work for me, I’ll try and send along some of that feedback to you individually.

  • Article from The Beauty Myth, chapter called “Work”: I’m going to try something a bit different with this one, since I’d like to have at least a little bit of a class discussion. Please use the Question on Classroom to write a 2-paragraph response, 1 summarizing the article and 2 responding with your position on it. When you submit, you’ll be able to see and respond to other students’ posts.

That’s it for today! Remember that you have until the end of the week to turn these in, but doing a little bit each day will make sure it doesn’t pile up too much. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

-Mr. Schenkelberg

Hello students!

I will simply give you credit for completing it, instead of marking points off for single questions.

  • Vocabulary for House on Mango Street: I think for vocabulary, I would like everyone to still use the handouts in the format I have in class, and so you will simply look up the definitions of words on your own. I’m thinking about ways I can have you practice using the new terms, but I’ll save that exercise for another day. For now, just fill out the Google Doc - I’ll do the process where I generate a blank form for every student to type into.

  • Continue reading House on Mango Street! Just in case people are reading ahead, I’m going to post the rest of the discussion questions to Classroom. I’ll set the deadline for these questions (which go all the way to the last story) to Friday next week.

That’s it for today! Remember that you have until the end of the week to turn these in, but doing a little bit each day will make sure it doesn’t pile up too much. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best,

-Mr. Schenkelberg
