There will be no graphic images, videos, or specific information shared with the students. This class will also use Kahoot. It is an online trivia game. Students will be sent a link through Zoom chat during class time. They will click on the link to take them directly to the game where they will enter their first name or nickname. No apps need to be downloaded and no personal information will be shared.
