What should I do if I am absent on the day of a Spelling Quiz?
Turn in your Spelling Power Worksheet when you return to class. Instead of taking an oral spelling quiz, write 20 sentences (using each word twice) and turn this in to Ms. Traver. Make sure you spell the words correctly in the sentences. This counts as your Spelling Quiz.Back to Top
How do I transfer assignments from my home computer to school?
There are several answers. Hopefully, the software you use at home is compatible with what we use at school, which is MS Office 2003. If you use Office 2007, you have to save it as an older version. We are gradually updating our system.1. Invest in a flash drive, or jump drive. Save your work on a USB flash drive and transfer it to your account at school. A teacher can help you. Please test it out first because this doesn't always work.2. Email your work to your teacher. I suggest you try to email it as an attachment as well as include it in the text of your email. Your teacher can help you save it to your account.Back to Top
Is there any extra credit I can do?
I encourage you to try your best on every assignment. You can really raise your grade by doing well on major assignments, such as the quarter project. Put your effort into this.If you want to improve your spelling grade, study the bonus words because every week I include two bonus words.When we take tests and quizzes, I often include an extra essay question. Give it a try.I rarely give out extra credit to raise grades because I prefer that put your effort into what we're currently learning in class. Visit my web page often because I sometimes give extra credit for reading something or attending a community event.Back to Top
Can I work on my PPT for my 2nd Quarter Project at home?
You will be given three class periods to prepare your presentation, which should give you plenty of time. You should have your slides planned on paper before working on PPT. Also, animation should be the last thing to be added. If you do work at home, there is always a chance it might not work with the school's computer system.Back to Top
How am I going to show my PPT to the class?
When you are completely done with your presentation, save a copy to the folder in the Student Shared Drive. You will show your presentation on the SmartBoard.Back to Top
