I just wanted to let you know that we have had to re-arrange the Geography calendar a little. The changes are already reflected on the class calendar at BinghamsPlace.com and in GradeSpeed.
Overall student performance on the Geographic Review assessment was below expectations and below standards that students will need for success on the End of Course (EOC) exam in the Spring. Further, there is no way for us to continue our conversation about geography until the fundamentals are clear in every student’s mind. There really isn’t any reason to push forward with the curriculum until this learning is accomplished. So, we are circling back to work on effective study and reading strategies and the same content followed by another assessment next week.
You may hear from your student that some of the class norms/procedures have been changed by me as well. This is to facilitate learning until all students are able to succeed with more open and liberal policies.
If you have questions, feel free to reply to this message. As always, it’s a pleasure to work with you and your student.
