    9th grade:

    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!
