Mrs. Thuren » Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome to English class! This year,we will be studying a variety of texts, such as short stories and dramas. The 9th graders will be studying the tragedy of "Romeo and Juliet" while the 10th graders will be studying the tragedy of "Julius Caesar". Both the 9th and 10th graders will also be exploring types of writing, especially persuasive writing to help prepare them for the English regents, in addition to studying grammar, spelling and punctuation.

Student Engagement in Lessons

Good morning!
 
I just wanted to discuss with you all an important matter relating to attendance and completing lessons. 
 
Even though students "check in" for the day, it is EXTREMELY important that your child completes the daily NearPod lessons for all their teachers. We know that this is an overwhelming task, which is why we try to be as flexible as possible in regards to a timeline for the completion of lessons. 
 
Please keep in mind that due to our current circumstances, the student engagement on NearPod is an important factor in allowing us to provide credit for assignments and the classes. This is why you have probably been contacted by teachers regarding missing NearPod lessons. 
 
We ask that, again, you visit the homeroom page for the daily NearPod assignments for each class. In order to see those codes, you need to go to www.tiegerman.org, go to the top where it says "Schools" and then click on the "Tiegerman High School Remote Learning" link on the drop-down menu. You will then be brought to a page where all teachers are listed, as well as all the homeroom teachers (located on the right-hand side in the blue box). These pages are updated on a weekly basis with new NearPod codes, so basically all the lessons for the week should be completed no later than Friday of that week.
 
I have been told that teachers also post their NearPod codes on their pages in additional posts as well, so if you are told your child is missing a lesson from a specific day, you should be able to find it on their page, especially if is a lesson from the previous week. If you have trouble finding the lesson code, please feel free to email that teacher directly.
 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of the ELA lessons, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
 
Thank you!
