Virtual Learning - 7th Grade Math & Social Studies


  • Grade Recovery Information

     

         If your student failed Q1 OR Q2 for Report Cards in Math, grade recovery is available. There is no grade recovery for Social Studies. 

     

         Credit Recovery is accessed through Launchpad and then clicking "Blended Learning." There will be no login or additional steps required if you click on Blended Learning.

     

    ***Note: Do Not Click Credit Recovery because it'll ask you to log in; there are no assignments here.

     

         Students will have from the start of Q2 until May 15, 2021 to complete the grade recovery. The Q1 or Q2 Report Card grade will be replaced with the completion of the Blended Learning grade recovery assignments. The title for the course will show automatically once inside of Credit Recovery for Math. Specifically, it is labeled "Richardson Virtual Mathematics 7A- Q1 and Q2 Grade/Credit Recovery."

     

         Please do not wait until the last minute to start on the Blended Learning (for grade repair) assignments over Numbers and Operations because students will run out of time since it is calculated at 9 hours total work-time for assignment completion. The virtual lessons look similar to I-Ready, but are located only in Blended Learning.

     

         Let me know if you have any additional questions via email at richaju@boe.richmond.k12.ga.us or Remind App using the class code located to the right in the contact section. Students will log on and complete the Grade Recovery in Blended Learning from Launchpad for Q1 alone on their own.

     

    ***Students are still responsible to complete the current Q3 and Q4 work assignments that will remain in Canvas along with attendance inside of the live classes in Teams.

  • Hello everyone!

    The teacher page located here for Ms. Richardson's 7th Grade Math and Social Studies will contain overall school information.

    Go to https://www.rcboe.org/canvas to complete the Canvas Orientation. This orientation teaches you how to use the components in Canvas. When you click on Modules, you can quickly see all of the topics that are covered.  Students can print out a certificate upon completion that the student/parent will email to me at (richaju@boe.richmond.k12.ga.us). 

     

    All assignments and announcements will be posted in Canvas. Be sure to sign up for all Canvas notifications and adjust your settings from there as the year progresses.

     

    Canvas will be the main platform for interaction and communication. Other student platforms that are accessible through Launchpad will include BrainPop and MyHRW. External resources we will use include Khan Academy for additional practice and help videos. Please view the syllabus for grade percentage weights and an outline of classroom expectations.

     

    Virtual Learning Expectations

    1. Honesty and Integrity: Integrity is the practice of being honest and showing consistent and uncompromising adherence to strong moral and ethical principles and values. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions.
    2. Late and Missed Assignments: Late assignments will receive (-5) pts. per day late until a grade of 65 (failing) is reached. Missed assignments will reflect a grade of 65 (failing) until completed. 
    3. Flexible Mindsets: This is new to everyone and it will take time to iron out the wrinkles. 
    4. Live (synchronous learning): Cameras on; Microphones on mute until called on by raising your hand either virtually or physically in your student camera. Student Code of Conduct still applies to online learning and discipline will still follow. 
    5. Self-paced (asynchronous learning): Assignments are due the Sunday before the next school week begins. This allows for 3-5 days for assignment completion in the account of student and parent schedules.

     

    I am looking forward to an amazing year with this new experience for us all! Do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions, comments, and concerns. I have limited tech-support ability, but I will assist where I can. 

     

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Juanita Richardson
