      • Students will complete the annual District Student Attribute Survey.
      • Download the lesson plan: 9th-11th Lesson Plan

    December 11

    • Grades 9-12: Guest Speaker Jens Larson, Assoc. Vice President for Enrollment Management at Eastern Washington University.  Jens will be speaking on “Digital Integrity:  Online Identity and Reputation Management.” 
      • ALL Seminar classes will remain in their assigned rooms and the presentation will last the entire scheduled seminar time.  Jens will be speaking from room 231 and we will be broadcasting the presentation through a live feed to your classroom.

      • Teacher tech responsibilities are very minimal and very simple.  I have attached a one minute video and one sheet hand out to help explain the process.  A second email will follow this one on Monday, inviting you to “Join Microsoft Team Meeting” on Tuesday.  Everyone already has the Microsoft Teams software even if you have never used it before.  At the beginning of Seminar open the link (see attached instructions) on your computer and through your classroom projector show the presentation on your big classroom video screen.  Please DO NOT delete this second email until after Tuesday.

      • Because it is a live feed and not taped, during Jens’ presentation he can field questions or discuss ideas that may arise from students in your classroom.  Students relay the question/comment to you and you can type it on your computer to be seen by Jens in room 231.

      • We used this type of delivery last year on a very limited, but very successful basis.  (If you had a senior or junior seminar class last year you have some experience with this type of video presentation.)  Be prepared for future seminar lessons to also include this type of live feed---in January we will utilize this method by video conferencing with Theresa Meyer during registration

      • We are being supported during the planning of this event, and during the implementation, by a number of people at LC, ITSC, and SPS Ed Tech.  Thanks to all for their assistance.  Please don’t hesitate to ask questions now or on Tuesday.

Marybeth has tasked a team of TA’s to assemble the materials and the bundles will be available in Room 107 (Career Center) by this Friday, January 11. Feel free to add to your door with any other props or supplies you see fit! Thanks for helping your senior Tigers embrace this forgotten tradition.

    11th grade:
    • Skype Presentation (how to access Skype)
      • From room 105, Brian Spraggins will be presenting on the topic. The presentation will last the entire seminar period.  Instead of bringing all juniors to the auditorium, we will be filming him and sending a live feed to your classroom and you will join a Skype Meeting to access the live presentation.

      • On Monday, Jeff will send you anemail with a link to “join” the Skype meeting. Everyone already has the Skype application on your computer, even if you have never used it before. It’s just like following any other internet video link you might use in your classroom. At the beginning of seminar open the Skype link on your computer and through your classroom projector show it on your big classroom screen.

      • Because it is a live feed, not a taped presentation, during Brian’s presentation, we can field any questions or ideas that may arise from your students.  Have the students relay the question through you and Brian can respond.

     
     12th grade:
    • Computer Lesson on Naviance - PowerPoint to guide lesson
      • Students will complete two of the following three tasks required for their High School and Beyond Plan before graduation:

        • HSBP Form: A VERY simple rewriteable form with fill-in boxes to check that students can complete on the computer in literally a couple of minutes.  They only complete the section that applies to their decision for next year.  For most this will be the front side of the form only.

        • Resume/or Self Reflection: Also a rewriteable form that will also only take 15-20 minutes

        • Parent Agreement: This one goes home, so they can not complete on Tues.

        • When finished the student can either email the form to Jeff Norton (jeffn@spokaneschools.org) as an attachment or print and hand to you. Any forms you collect just return to Norton's mailbox in the main office. Seniors will not get issued a cap and gown until these tasks and a Senior Exit interview (May 1) are complete!
