to the Dulaney Online Classroom March-May 2020
Students: Hopefully everyone is staying healthy, washing well, and socially distancing. As we finish out the 2019-2020 school year, it is important to stay in communication weekly and to show effort toward maintaining what you have learned so far. I look forward to helping each of you attain your personal goals and finding new ideas and interests to pursue. We can still continue to explore and create so much together even if we are not in the classroom.
Parents: There are three ways to stay informed about your child's progress and once signed in, they are all able to be auto-connected to your favorite device(s).
Make sure to go to the E-notes below to get messages from time to time sent to you by text or email related to class activities and deadlines. Each teacher has their own e-notes, so be sure to sign on to the main e-notes for RISD for district notifications as well as each teacher that your child has for classes. E-Notes are also subdivided into individual classes, so register for all classes to get class specific announcements. Otherwise, you will only get general messages sent to all of that teacher's classes, rather than something specific. I use E-Notes for everyone and Edmodo for specific classes.
I use Edmodo to communicate with students and parents on specific class information, so please register as a parent to keep informed there as well. I will give you a parent code either by personal e-mail (or when not in a pandemic in person) that will grant you access. Please e-mail me with a request for this after your child is signed in. Edmodo will allow your child to store projects from computers at school with devices at home or anywhere with wifi, so that they and you can see assignments anywhere. Many homework and test communications will be posted on Edmodo and extra helps and videos will be posted there as well. Grades in Edmodo are not a total grade for the district because not all of our work is done online.
Thirdly, make sure that you get an access code from Naomi Chance to get alerts from Gradebook related to attendance and grades. I enter detailed information which can be accessed by clicking on the grade numbers that are underlined in Gradebook. During the pandemic, Gradebook is “frozen”.
In addition here are some links to websites with materials to assist students in their own learning:
