Mastery Evaluation
Frequency: 1-2 throughout the class
Feedback: as needed
Details: Students will be invited-- though not required-- to read their poem aloud at the end of class to receive feedback from the teacher. Students who would prefer to send their poem to the teacher for written feedback are welcome to do so!
Below are my general classroom rules and policies. These will also be explained to students when we begin class!
-For everyone's safety, and to ensure an engaging and social experience, students are required to have working microphones and video for the entirety of this class, positioned such that we can both hear and see them.
-Students are asked not to use filters or virtual backgrounds-- though if there is an important reason to use a virtual background, please just let me know ahead of time that your student will be using one (no questions asked!).
-Students will be asked to introduce themselves by sharing their name, pronoun, and a favorite book.
-The Zoom text chat is set to "host only", meaning students can chat with me, but not to one another or the entire classroom.
