Welcome to the Counselor's Office
Tips for online learning to make sure you are successful:
Treat your online learning like a “real” course. Spend at least five days a week completing your assignments the same way you would in your face-to-face class. One of the easiest ways to ensure follow through is to remember that you are getting a grade for your completed work for the 4th nine weeks.
Hold yourself accountable. Set goals at the beginning of the nine weeks (March 24, 2020) and check yourself weekly. You will not have the teacher actively reminding you about due dates. It’s all up to you!
Practice time management. Create a pacing chart for the week. Try one assignment per day for each class and increase or decrease as needed. Make a daily routine for your online learning, allot a certain amount to time for each assignment, then move to the next assignment. Set a timer to keep you on track.
Create a study space and stay organized. Set up a leaning environment for studying daily so you can begin to establish a routine. It can be your kitchen table, a desk, etc. Setting up a regular study space will help you stay organized. Make sure you have, high-speed internet connection, required books, materials, website addresses, and headphones. You will also need paper, pens, or pencils.
Eliminate distractions. Resist the temptation to watch TV or movies online, play games, check email, text or visit websites like Facebook, twitter, Instagram and others that will take your attention away from your learning.
Actively participate. Take notes and write down any questions you may have and contact your teacher for clarification. Ask your teacher to create a class discussion thread. Remember your learning for the next two weeks will depend mostly on you! If you feel yourself falling behind SPEAK UP! Don’t wait until the last minute to report issues. Email your teacher and be proactive in asking for help.
