  2. ADD an Outline and Copy Template Doc for EACH of your future spreads in the appropriate Deadline Folder. Look on the ladder to find the spreads assigned to you and the page numbers.

Good morning.

Today I’d like you to look at the LADDER to see what spread you need start working on for Deadline 1. Use the templates in Google Classroom (Start with the Spread Information Sheet) to begin gathering information.

Use the documents in the Student Staff Info 2020 folder to look for names, contact info, and schedules. If you need to find a student’s schedule, come see me, and I can look it up.

Here are some examples of questions to ask sources. 

Log in to Walsworth to get to your spread in Online Design. We will be updating those pages for you today.

Cammie will also be conferencing with you individually about your spreads.

TODAY/RIGHT NOW/AS SOON AS YOU LOG IN, please copy the folder of photos you took last week into the folder titled: YRBK_FirstPhotos_Sept.2020 in the Class Read/Write folder on the server.

We will look through your photos together to see what images we might want to use.

We will also look at what worked well and what didn’t so that the next time you go out to shoot, you’ll have a better idea of what to do and what not to do.

We will also look at the ladder to see what Deadline 1 Spreads are assigned to you. We will also look at some forms to fill out once you’re assigned a spread. And we’ll look at the steps for the entire process of doing a spread.

Good morning!

Today we’re going to discuss Classroom Expectations. I know you’re excited about this.

Most of my rules and expectations are probably similar to other teachers’, but some are particular to this class. We’ll go over them today, and if you have any questions, be sure to ask or email me later.

I’m also going to be giving you a form today that I need you to sign and have your parent/guardian sign and return by Tuesday.

Remember that the new tardy policy begins TOMORROW.
