Welcome to world geography! There are a number of resources available to you on this site. So, please explore.
The two pages that everyone should be looking at the most are Homework and Announcements. The homework page should be self-explanatory. The Announcements page, not as much. I put test dates, quiz dates and project dates on the Announcements page. I also include a weekly TED Talk and an "image of the week". Watching the TED Talk is optional, but I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from parents and students regarding that particular feature. Homework will be posted on the homework page. I do this at the beginning of the week for the entire week.
I do push out links to the homework and announcements via Twitter. You can follow my class on Twitter: @lexwildgeo
. This is , and I would expect parents to follow this class on Twitter more than I would students. Regardless, it's optional. In addition to homework I will make the attempt to "tweet" posts that are related to the content of the class.
Another "need to know" piece of information is that I generally assign all homework for the week on Mondays. This allows students to work it into their schedules. There are exceptions to this, but they are rare.
