Distance Learning

Hello, Quistors! Whether you elect to tackle your assignments early in the week, late in the day, or overnight, I know this process has not been without its challenges. Do you remember the certainties of life we discussed in class? Death. Change. Taxes. You will experience them all and learn to make your own personal adjustments to them.

Lesson plan summaries for each week are listed by month/date and highlighted below the Assignments tab. I'll also send updates and information via Remind. Teams can be accessed through your Office 365 school account at dcsdms.org. Many students use the Teams app to view and complete class assignments. Once in assignments, you can open the related articles and videos. The student work attachments need to be edited in BROWSER so your answers are saved and submitted correctly.

DCS computer techs have worked exhaustively to help thousands of students and teachers connect, learn, and grow in education. Take note of the people, vocations, and businesses considered essential during this unique time in history. Their skill sets should speak volumes to those who aspire for a career in computer science, the health sciences, mechanics, and engineering. 

Stay home, stay healthy, and be as helpful as possible to your parents and family.

All my best,
Mrs. Parnell

April 13-17
1. Review your work in Teams. If you have internet access, whether it be on your phone, a tablet, a desktop, or a laptop, all of my assignments are accessible. I see many who are viewing the assignments but not completing nor submitting the work.
2. Be sure you are signed up for REMIND. We covered this many weeks ago several times in class. You can use the Remind links below for instructions.
3. Contact a friend or classmate. Check in on each other. We are all feeling a bit separated and in need of socialization at this time. How about showing up to a zoom meeting? I've had a small fraction of students show up to a few meetings. We shared experiences, jokes, and information necessary to complete the few assignments I've given.
4. The Power of Habit and paradigms are
this week's focus. Videos and handouts are assigned and accessible in Teams. Completed work should be submitted in Teams; however, it is permissible to take a pic of your written work and either email it to me or submit it via Remind.
5. If you are having difficulty submitting work in Teams, please contact a classmate or friend and ask how he/she has been able to submit work. I figured out several ways to work in Teams on my own just by reading material and viewing the free instructional videos, many of which I have on my website as well as dcsdms.org. 

April 21-24
1. Review Mrs. P's website. Check out the new flip book viewer link under the Subject Resources: Personal Leadership banner.

4. Go outside and get some sunshine. It is vital to our emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Even your sleep cycle is tied to adequate daylight.
5. Pace your learning. Don't pack too much in at a time and don't put off more than you can handle at the end of the week. Moderation, balance, and willpower will be of great use to you, now and in the future. 

April 27-May 8
1. Take a moment, hour, or even day away from social media. It will do you some good. 
2. Sign in to Teams. Review assignments. Submit your completed work.

4.
