Tomorrow will be the first meeting for the Youth Coding League Club after school. We are scheduled to meet from 3:10-5:10 but I don’t I don’t think it will take that long to get everyone signed up and ready to work on our second meeting. 

This week students should have their groups forms, contracts completed, and on Monday will finalize their final decision on a project. They will begin to work on their Need To Knows. Lesson plans are posted if you would like more detailed information.

I am the sponsor for the new coding club called Youth Coding League. It is a club that revolves around learning to code and then competing to demonstrate your learning. No prior experience is necessary and those who participated at the 5th and 6th grade center will build on their prior knowledge. This club will meet on Mondays, from 3:10-5:10. This is a free program. Students who place in competitions can win some really cool prizes. All club members who don’t drop out after the 4th Sprint will receive a t-shirt and hat. There will be a celebration in Cape Girardeau in the middle of December when they announce winners. It will be a great opportunity for other coders to meet and mingle. If your student is interested, they can pick up applications/information from the front office or from me. I have attached an informational slide for your perusal.

Lesson plans are posted. This will be a big week for students. They will actually begin working on their projects. For students who have never done project based learning before, this will be a difficult time. They will have a lot of questions and feel very unsure about what they are doing. One of the main components of PBL is allowing students to struggle and find answers and make decisions on their own. They will have A LOT of decisions to make. I will guide them a little but I will try to remain as “hands off” as possible. Most students are not used to this and it will take them a little time to adjust. Please reassure them they are capable and they will get through this phase. 

As parents/guardians, it can also be very confusing. Please feel free to contact me any time you have questions or concerns. I encourage and welcome all communications! 

I typically respond to emails after school or the next day on my prep period. Here is my contact information:

First post of the 2019-2020 school year: 

Good afternoon parents/guardians, 

The goal for this page is to keep you, as well as students, up to date with what is going on in class. It will be a little different from other teacher’s pages, such as my class is, because I will have multiple groups doing different projects. 

Let’s begin with the essentials: 

 Supplies needed. The only item your student will need for this class (for now) is a composition book.  They are $0.50 at Wal Mart or most of our local stores. They will also need some writing utensil. 

Students will need to keep their iPads charged, as we use them almost daily. (Or have their chargers with them to charge, if needed) They will be completing work on these devices, as well as researching and creating things. 

Weekly Assessements: These assignments will be sent out in Google Classroom and submitted the same way) 

Individual Project Work Report: (Completed by all students EXCEPT Project Managers.) 

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_work_report_ind_updated.pdf

Team Project Work Report: (Completed by the TEAM but submitted by one team member.)

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_work_report_team_updated.pdf

Project Management Log: (Completed by the Project Manager only.) 

https://s3.amazonaws.com/scschoolfiles/1032/project_management_log_updated.pdf

 

Miscellaneous Assessments: 

Each group will decide, on their own, what project they want to do. Grades will be specific to what the needs of the group, or individual, is. If a group needs to learn how to create a poll, I will teach them how to do it, let them practice the skill, and then grade the final product they send out.  

Looking at grades in SIS: 

Not all students will have the same amount of total points. As I mentioned earlier, grades are specific to students and to groups, depending on their needs. When looking at grades in SIS, if your student has a blank space for an assignment, this means this particular assignment wasn’t assigned to them. If you see a 0, this means your student IS missing this assignment, or I have made an error. Please feel free to contact me to clarify. With so many variables, I DO make mistakes. :=)
