Students will need access to a Google account in order to use Google Docs. -Kahoot: Some weeks will contain an optional Kahoot to review the week's readings and vocabulary. This will be a clickable link and the student does not need to sign up for any account to play the Kahoots. -Youtube: Some weeks might have a Youtube video as a way to extend learning at the end of the material. These extension activities will be optional. To watch these videos, no account is needed.
