Mid-Year Student Orientation

Your Syllabus

Click the link below to view your syllabus.  If you need to print a copy, do so.  Mrs. Evans tries to keep copies for new students in the classroom.  Please return your syllabus slip as soon as possible.  Your parent may also choose to complete the digital form of the syllabus slip, linked on the document.

Orientation Video

At the beginning of a typical year, we view this video.  Feel free to watch it!

As far as classroom procedures go, watch the video below!

Tour of the Classroom Website

The classroom website is evansenglish.me.  Mrs. Evans posts to the website daily; each class has a post for every day.  These posts summarize the events of the class, the homework assigned, deadlines, and expectations.  These posts are especially helpful when you are absent or when you lose a worksheet that was given out.

The best way to find only the information for your class is to click your class name on the home page or at the top menu.  This will take you to a page with snippets from all of the posts for your class.  Click on the titles to read the whole post.

Sometimes, directions include hyperlinks.  Hyperlinks are words that, when clicked, take the user to another page.  For instance, this link will take you to the page about Mrs. Evans.  Sometimes, the hyperlinks are descriptive (which means that they tell you what the destination of the link is) and sometimes the sentence around the link tells you what the link takes you to.

When looking for your assignment, you will find the date and then name of the class on post title.  For instance, “English 10” indicates that the post is exclusively about the sophomore English course for that day.  Some posts do not have a class designation; this probably means that they are general posts or are meant for parents.

Calendar

The calendar on the classroom website is very helpful for students who are seeking activities for a specific day, especially students who were absent.  Using the calendar to the right to find an assignment from a specific day requires users to click on that specific date.  If the date is not clickable, there was either no school that day, or silly Mrs. Evans forgot to make a post.

Daily Posts

Mrs. Evans will usually post each day’s assignment in the morning.  This allows students who were absent to come back to school caught up if they were well enough to do work from home.  Posts will always be made by the end of the day, before Mrs. Evans leaves for the day.  Occasionally, a post is missed.  Give a holla and Mrs. Evans will correct this mistake! :)
