Ms. Symank's Class
Welcome to online remote learning at home.
Check your district Gmail, Schoology, and Assignment Slide Deck DAILY for updates and information!
We will continue to do English Language Development work in areas of Reading, Writing, Listening, Research, and Speaking. The district is using the iLit learning program for ELD for the remainder of the year. I will be able to add some supplement activities to the program, but this new learning platform is the foundation of instruction for the rest of the year.

You need to attend the ELD class every day to pass the course. You must be in the live Zoom Meets within the SRMS official start time of your class or you will be counted TARDY.
To not be counted absent from class, you must attend and participate (speak, write, read, and listen) completing all assigned work and activities for that day.
Remember, all class online Zoom meetings are recorded providing a body of evidence of your participation (speaking and listening).
On W, Office Hours/Help with Assignments: 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Check-in at the start time of your class for the role and an overview of the expected work for the day. Then, drop in when you need help during the day with any assignments in any class. I will be in the classroom all day.
If you need extra help on any assignment in any class, email me (email@example.com) and we will schedule a private Zoom meeting with your parent's permission (required).
There is really NO assigned homework; however, if you do not complete each day's assigned work during the on-line class session, you are expected to complete that work at home on your own time as soon as possible. With the new district ELD curriculum, iLit, you will also be able to read the books you check out from the library during asynchronous (self-paced and independent work time) as you need or want.
I am working from home during COVID, so you will not be able to reach me by phone. If I call you at home, I will be blocking my personal phone number. The best way to reach me is by email. Wednesdays 9:00 am-2:00 pm in Google Meets and by appointment for individual help (with parent permission); You can always email me and ask for an individual Google Meets appointment (with parent permission).
Wednesday Office Hours and Help with ALL Schoolwork :
I am learning Spanish and can read and write in Spanish fairly well, but I am still very unsure when speaking in Spanish. A translator, Miss Lidia, will be available by appointment to help anyone who needs information translated into Spanish.
Una traductora, la señorita Lidia, estará disponible con cita previa para ayudar a cualquier persona que necesite información traducida al español.
