At this point ALL of the standards that will be on the SSA have been covered in class (between 6th,7th, and 8th grade). Students have identified how they have scored on each of these benchmarks as of the Mock SSA test we took before spring break — this is your guide as to what you need to review between now and the SSA on May 2nd.
There are going to be a few changes coming in the 4th 9 weeks as we transition to a more Data-Driven, Student centered classroom:
- PENDA home learning will still continue, but there will be one large weekly grade (approximately 400/500 points usually) instead of individual assignment scores. Remember: Penda is assigned on FRIDAY and is due 10 days later on a Monday.
- Students should come prepared with their ISN, pen/pencils, and their Fusion Textbook daily. We will now need to make sure we have headphones/earbuds as well.
- We will be reviewing some benchmarks full group, in small groups or individually — students are expected to be aware of what they need to review.
We are incorporating a new program called OneNote into the classroom. Students now have access to an online digital notebook where they can take notes, complete assignments, and more.
This notebook is accessible 24/7 if you go through oneview.duvalschools.org. Everything saves automatically — no more lost assignments!
More information will be posted here over the next few days. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
