Weekly Lesson Plans
The school currently uses schoology to update lesson plans. This site is a back-up for the college English class.
Morning Class Plans
2nd Hour: College English
Check Blackboard for these plans.
Welcome to second semester! You will notice some changes this semester, especially with the management system. Do you remember all the times I told you last semester that you should focus on knowing what your conventions are and figuring out how to achieve those (MLA, APA requirements using OWL Purdue; Word vs. Google Docs; tools that make your work stand out like web templates WIX or Weebly)? Well, that was mostly to motivate myself to learn the new learning management tool. Rather than Blackboard, Canvas will be the LMS for MPCC. This may be a learning semester for both of us.
Here are this week's plans:
