Support: There are situations where certain of my students will need more additional customized help, we all deserve a equitable education. certain strategies already mentioned will help those students achieve academic success in my classes, but teamwork can help us all achieve our academic goals.
DIGITAL ACCESS: AS INDICATED IN THE SYLLABUS, MY CLASS WEBSITE CONTAINS ALL OF THE LECTURE, AND ASSIGNMENTS AS THE SEMESTER PROGRESSES. IT ALSO ALREADY CONTAINS SEVERAL PRIMARY SOURCES THAT WILL BE USED FOR HOMEWORK, CLASS WORK, PROJECTS AND EXAMS. PLEASE USE THIS TOO, IT IS AVAILABLE TO ALL AND FOR FREE. I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES OWNING A COMPUTER OR HAVING ACCESS TO THE INTERNET IS NOT AVAILABLE TO ALL AT HOME, SO PLEASE USE ONLINE ACCESS EITHER EITHER ON SCHOOL GROUPS OR AT A PUBLIC LIBRARY. THIS ACCESS IS FOR PERSONAL USE, ALL OF THESE ASSIGNMENTS AND TOOLS, WILL BE PROVIDED IN CLASS, SO DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED TO ACCESS THE WEBSITE.
After Class Help: Every Friday after class, you can stop by the classroom and go over any class material or question regarding the lectures. This time is open to all, and you are not obligated to attend, and it is the perfect time to prepare for an exam, which are always on Mondays.
Group Work: There will be several opportunities during the semester in which group activities will take place. Some of the activities will require for students to work on a group of threes, but most likely it will be in a pair group. In some instance it is better to work in a group with familiar people, so there will be times when work can be done with close peers, but there will be other occasions that will require students to work with new peers.
Social Justice: It is important to restore any social injustice that has occurred in the classroom, and the way that social justice will be gained is through a process of cooperation that includes everyone involved. It is important to restore social justice in the class in order to establish a community.
