• Electronic textbook and Schoology

    Posted by Angela Drake on 3/26/2020 12:00:00 PM

    Online textbook:

    Your electronic textbook is found at my.hrw.com and your usernames can be found in this document. Your password should be drakeflock. Contact me if the username from the document does not work or if the password is wrong. Contact me only after consulting the link to the document.

    Schoology password:

    The website for Schoology is acpsd.schoology.com. Consider using the SChoology app for the phone. It has a great suer intetrface!

    Your username is still your student ID number, but your password was changed to MHVS2020. Since you cannot turn work in at the school, I am requesting that students turn in their Ten Day Packet work by scanning the paper or taking pictures of the work, then submitting the scan or picrture to Schoology in appropriate spaces. (These palce will be available by March 30. As of this posting, I have not created these yet.)

    Phase 2 Plans:

    I am dedicating Thrusday and Friday to finalizing Quarter 3 grades and writing Phase 2 Distance Learning plans. Please call, email, or message me wth questions.

  • Phase 2

    Posted by Angela Drake on 3/25/2020 8:00:00 PM

    Turning in Ten Day work: Your coursework during the ten day packet was a review of previous material or repurposing of old skills mixed with some new content. By Monday, March 30, I will have added space in Schoology for your students to turn in photos/scans of their Ten Day paper assignments.

    April coursework: Like the ten day packet, you will continue to apply skills already established in our course up until now. This will provide many opportunities for you to showcase their language skills with new activities and new tools!

    Work habits/contact info: Please keep up with your course work! Do not let the work pile up, as this will add unnecessary stress at a difficult time. Develop a schedule for getting school work completed.

    Do contact me with any questions about the content. Call me at 1-803-426-9025, message me on Schoology, or email me at adrake@acpsd.net. I have online hours at freeconferencecall.com using the meeting code adrake36 if students want to video conference or share screens.

    Paper packets as a last resort: I sent an e-mail to both parents and students. I requested that student "like" the email in Office 365 or that parents/students respond. I will place phone calls to households who do not respond.

    This transition is a difficult one to be sure. Luckily, you are already familiar with Schoology, so that will be of some relief. I do hope that Phase 2 of our distance learning allows more creativity and choice in how students participate in language learning!

  • Schoology passwords

    Posted by Angela Drake on 3/18/2020 2:55:00 PM

    The district has reset all Schoology passwords to a generic password for each school. Most student passwords across the county were randomly generated, so teachers who might wish to begin using Schoology for distance learning were unable to provide students with their Schoology passwords. This simplifies the process for them.

    For Midland Valley students, your username will continue to be your student ID number, but your new password will be MVHS2020. As soon as you  log-in, go to the gear button in the upper right hand corner and reset your password to something memorable for you, and write the new password (or a hint about it) on your yellow website URL log sheet that I provided you at the beginning of the year.
