COVID-19 at Home Learning Opportunities

    Hello parents and students of Sweetwater High School.  I hope that you all are staying safe and healthy during this tumultuous time.  As we try to adapt to this adverse time the teachers and administrators are trying their best to still give an excellent learning opportunity for students. 
    In accordance with this, students in my classes who have access to the IXL learning platform will still have ample learning opportunities, and I will be posting the expectations for students to complete in our modified operations on this page.  IXL functions as a cellphone app that can be found on both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.  It can also be found online at IXL.com.  It has been brought to my attention that it can also be accessed through the website browsers on gaming consoles such as the Playstation 4 and XBOX One.  Basically, if you have internet access, you can access IXL in one way or another.  If your child does not have their login information for IXL, please email me at sneedg@monroe.k12.tn.us and I will respond as soon as possible to give that information.  As a general rule of thumb, students should be completing the yellow, highlighted skills for there course level.  Students should attempt to complete three or more skills per day that we are closed. What makes the IXL platform so great is that if a student misses a question, it goes into great detail to explain what they may have done wrong and how to avoid that issue in the future.  I will answer any questions I can through email that students may have, but I can best do this if students attach a screenshot of the problem they are working on to the email.  Please make sure that your student is on the correct course as I teach both Algebra I and Algebra II.  Students should be shooting for a score of 90 to get full credit (A.K.A. a 100) for the skill; any skill below that will result in that percentage point being awarded.
    I will be posting guidelines for the skills that students should follow to have some semblance of structure and pacing. I hope that you and your families remain safe and healthy during this trying time.
